US Sailing's Championships Sponsorship Advantages
Sailboat racing is fast-paced and exciting; it is one of the most challenging sports both mentally and physically. Imagine physical chess, or football but with a field that changes constantly. Here, we want to answer some of the question you might have about this event and the advantages of sponsorship.
Why support sailing?
Sailors are the people you want to know about your organization. They are fiercely loyal to companies who support sailing, they are decision-makers and leaders, they are affluent, and they understand the value of your sponsorship.
Through inclusion in the regatta program, your name displayed throughout the event, and exposure at every turn, we help make the most of your support.
Many of thecompetitors are Olympic hopefuls or national champions and will use this championship for cross training..
What makes a regatta?
A regatta is simply a series of races. However, there is a spirit of sportsmanship and tradition that is carried in the word regatta that truly applies to the races sailed here. Sailors are proud of this tradition, and the US Sailing Championships elicits a fierce loyalty within the sport. One analogy might be to say that the Kentucky Derby is more than a horse race.
Why a spectator boat?
As a sponsor, inviting your colleagues and clients to join you on the spectator boat is a way to both entertain and highlight your involvement with this prestigious regatta. Spectator boats will be on the water, near the racecourse, and offer the best vantage for observing the races. Guests on the spectator boats will experience the excitement of the regatta and the spirit of camaraderie while enjoying a day on the water.
Who sees the website?
Competitors across the country, their families and friends, and sailors in the area and beyond visit the US Sailing website in the months leading up to the event and, especially, during the regatta. Here is why:
The website is the main mode for information, details and planning.
The website features live, mark-by-mark coverage during the event. Thousands of people across the country spend the week of the regatta in front of this site watching to see how their favorite teams are doing!
Photos and results are available after the racing is over on the website, and the traffic is still strong as people go back for more information.
What are the social events and Awards Ceremony?
As a sponsor, we invite you to be a part of these, invite your colleagues and clients, and have fun with some exceptional sailors. Adult championships are geared differently from junior championships but both are marvelous opportunities for your company to interact with potential customers.
We understand that some of this sailboat lingo might be new to you, and we would be happy to answer any questions you might have about sailboat racing in general or any US Sailing championship in particular. Also, we welcome the opportunity to talk about other ways in which we can make sponsorship work with the specific goals of your organization.
