Peet Limited Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Brendan Gore, said the company was extremely pleased to partner Perth2011 and help focus national and international attention on Western Australia.
Mr Gore said, "In its early years, Peet was instrumental in opening up some of the very prestigious suburbs around Perth's most popular sailing clubs and we're looking forward to sharing our story and our future plans with the thousands of participants, spectators and visitors who come to Perth for this outstanding sailing event.
"Peet will be giving its full support to Perth 2011 and wish the organisers every success."
Perth 2011 Chief Operating Officer, Darren Beazley, welcomed the Peet Silver level sponsorship as a major boost for the ISAF Sailing World Championships.
"We are particularly pleased to have attracted the support of a company that was established in Western Australia and has now expanded to become a national success story," Mr Beazley said. "It is important to have the strong backing of a major enterprise in an event of such national and international importance."
More than 1400 sailors and 850 boats from some 80 nations will be competing in Perth for the ISAF Sailing World Championships. The event is expected to contribute some $41-million dollars to the West Australian economy.
