'Boat manufacturers have long been valuable partners for US Sailing in growing youth sailing and delivering world class championships. We are excited to be working with Zim, a new partner who brings an equal passion for growing sailing and helping deliver the best events possible. We look forward to introducing new equipment at our events that will keep sailing exciting and moving forward.'

Beginning this summer, Zim will be providing Byte CII sailboats to the U.S. Singlehanded Championships and Chubb U.S. Junior Championships. .

'We are thrilled to have competitors from US Sailing National Championships racing in our boats,' said Zim President Steve Perry.
