Sail-World.com : Barbados Announces Title Sponsorship of NA Beneteau Championship

Barbados Announces Title Sponsorship of NA Beneteau Championship

'Ben367NA10-B1364timwilkes - Beneteau 36.7 North Americans'    Tim Wilkes

Barbados is the official title sponsor of the 2011 Beneteau First 36.7 North American Championship in Toronto, Ontario. This year’s race, from September 8 to 11, marks the 10th anniversary of this North American Class Regatta event and is the first time it will be held in Canadian waters. The weekend will host multiple sailing races over four days and on-shore events including an evening celebration at the National Yacht Club on Friday, September 9, 2011 featuring Barbadian entertainment and a themed menu from the Caribbean’s first and only Zagat rated island.

'It is our distinct pleasure to partner with the National Yacht Club for the 2011 Beneteau championship,' said Cheryl Carter, Senior Business Development Manager for the Barbados Tourism Authority. 'Barbados has long been a destination for sailors around the world and hosts a number of regattas and sailing events throughout the year. We look forward to celebrating our love and respect for sailing with Canadian and American yachtsmen, here on Lake Ontario on this the 10th anniversary of this wonderful event.'

Sailing has been an integral part of Barbados’ history and the tradition continues today with a robust calendar of events. The racing season in Barbados begins in January and continues with events every weekend throughout the summer including the Mount Gay Regatta, the highlight of the local sailing calendar, every May. With racing in peaceful blue waters, racing and cruising classes take to Carlisle Bay in this annual event. For an unusual challenge, the Mount Gay Rum Round Barbados Race, held on January 21, 2012 is the perfect event. This race introduces sailors to Barbados’ diverse coastlines - through the rugged seas of the Atlantic Ocean on the east coast to the placid Caribbean Sea on the west coast - as they attempt to record the fastest time to sail around Barbados.
'We’re delighted to have Barbados as the main sponsor of this prestigious event for the Canadian and international sailing communities,' said Henry Piersig, Commodore at National Yacht Club. 'Barbados has hosted many Canadian sailors over the years and we are pleased to welcome Barbados to the National Yacht Club as this relationship continues.'
