Getting sponsorship for your event may be easier than you think. It's as simple as knowing what you have to offer and finding local companies that share similar goals. The restrictions to sponsorship because of US Sailing's prior agreements have become fewer and fewer each year. We will work with you to ensure that these restrictions do not become roadblocks to seeking sponsorship for your event.
We're not only available to help, we look forward to helping you start early on a successful sponsorship program for your event. There are several ways you can feature your local sponsors and provide them with coverage before and during the event. The first is to include their logo under that of the national sponsors on the regatta website if you are providing one. The second is to place an ad in your championship program. The third is to feature a sponsor as the "sponsor of the day".
If you need a logo, contact US Sailing. If you have specific questions about sponsorship and potential conflicts, please e-mail US Sailing
All materials and premiums must be approved by US Sailing three weeks prior to publication/ printing to avoid any conflicts with national sponsorship agreements. US Sailing has contractual obligations across several categories which need to be honored.
Racing marks and hats are normally provided by national sponsors. Local sponsors are asked not to provide these.
