'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.'
