Quantum Sails has joined the Helly Hansen Sailing World Regatta Series as the Official Sailmaker for the 2023 season, which will consist of five U.S. qualifying events kicking off in St. Petersburg in February and culminating with the Caribbean Championship in the British Virgin Islands this October.

Since 1996, Quantum Sails has provided sailors with top-quality equipment, performing at the highest level from the race course to cruising destinations around the globe. By utilizing the latest technology in sail design and manufacturing methods, and a team of top experts, Quantum produces sails that are unmatched in performance, consistency, and repeatability. Quantum's focus on sustainability, from solar-powered facilities to recycled sail materials, ensures generations to come will have the opportunity to enjoy sailing on cleaner waters.

"We are thrilled to welcome Quantum Sails to the Helly Hansen Sailing World Regatta Series," said Sarah Renz, Event Director for Sailing Events, Bonnier LLC. "We had a great season last year and have growing momentum with a record number of registered boats for St. Pete with four weeks to go. Interest among new and diverse teams has been outstanding and we look to have robust participation on and off the water at each of our five domestic events. Having partners like Quantum Sails allows us to continue to build the sustainability efforts, launch the Regatta Speaker Series and produce world-class events."

"Quantum is excited about this new partnership and the opportunity to deliver our comprehensive approach to regatta support to a wider range of sailors," said Ed Reynolds, President of Quantum Sails. "The Helly Hansen Sailing World Regatta Series team has built an incredible platform and we look forward to working with them to elevate the program."

As has been tradition for several years, the 2023 regular season will open for the Helly Hansen Sailing World Regatta Series in St. Petersburg, Fla., (February 17-19) hosted by the St. Petersburg Yacht Club. The second stop in San Diego, hosted by the San Diego and Coronado Yacht Clubs, will add a handicap sailing race circle and two-day Distance Race in addition to the traditional lineup for the weekend of March 17-19.

The annual visit for the Sailing World Regatta Series to Annapolis, Md., is scheduled for May 5-7 at the Annapolis Yacht Club. The long-running Chicago stop for the Regatta Series is set for June 9-11, hosted by Chicago Yacht Club. The regular season concludes in Marblehead, Mass., as the Corinthian Yacht Club hosts the finale, July 27-30.

The 2023 Caribbean Championship in the British Virgin Islands will be contested October 21-28. Sign up for the Regatta Series newsletter to learn how to win a spot in the Championship in the British Virgin Islands.
