Cruising Yacht Club of Australia Commodore Howard Piggott today announced that Sydney multimedia agency Moment Media has become the naming rights sponsor of the CYCA’s Youth Sailing Academy for the next three years.

Moment Media is a digital media agency that was founded by Ron Creevey that represents multiple digital companies under its umbrella including The Masses, Local.Mobi and NeZii. The company is changing the way traditional media companies look at assets they manage in the ever evolving mobile landscape.

'On behalf of the CYCA Board, members and youth sailing academy students, I would like to thank Ron Creevey, founder and CEO of Moment Media and his team for their sponsorship of the CYCA’s Youth Sailing Academy,' Commodore Howard Piggott said.

'Thanks to Moment Media’s support we can continue to deliver the benchmark in youth training for fleet and match racing disciplines using the clubs fleet of ten Elliott 7’s' he added.

'Moment Media has achieved a great deal in 2014 including the upcoming launch of our first movie from Heath Ledger’s production company, The Masses, and the pending launch of Sydney's most innovative recording and broadcast studio under the iconic Coke sign in Kings Cross that will play host to Kyle and Jackie O for VIP interviews along with major movie and music launches,' said Ron Creevey, founder of Moment Media.

'To now be linked to another iconic Sydney institution, the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, as the naming rights sponsor of the exciting youth sailing academy for the next three years is an absolute honour and in-line with the company’s youth focussed vision.'

The CYCA’s Youth Sailing Academy is one of the leading keelboat training facilities in the country, giving young people aged 13-24 the opportunity to learn the intricacies of fleet sailing and match racing. In 2013, the YSA celebrated its 20th anniversary and marked the occasion with the introduction of a new fleet of 10 Elliott 7 boats.

To date, over 3,000 students have graduated from the YSA’s introductory course and some have successfully represented the CYCA at both national and international match racing and fleet racing regattas including the Olympic Games and America’s Cup.

Youth Sailing Academy alumni have also gone on to become significant contributors to ocean racing teams competing in events such as the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race and the Land Rover Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race.
