The three-year agreement runs through 2009 and includes the creation of a US SAILING RIBCRAFT RIB available to US SAILING members and member sailing organizations.
'This partnership recognizes that every day thousands of support boats at hundreds of sailing organizations carry precious cargo - coaches, instructors and students,' said US SAILING's Marketing Director Dan COONEY. 'RIBCRAFT's superb quality, product knowledge and commitment to sailing will not only contribute to our organization and our members but will also contribute to the sport in general. We're thrilled to have them on-board.'
The partnership includes the development of a 15 foot US SAILING RIBCRAFT RIB that comes equipped with a 40HP engine, configured to meet the requirements of sailing organizations and their on-the-water activities. In addition, RIBCRAFT will provide the US Sailing Team with professional-grade RIBs for use in training and competition at home and abroad. RIBCRAFT will also provide financial support to US SAILING.
'Having been dedicated to supplying the sailing community with high-quality, professional-grade RIBs for many years, it seems only natural that we've partnered with the national governing body for the sport,' said RIBCRAFT President Brian GRAY. 'We look forward to strengthening our commitment to the sailing community through support and sponsorship of US SAILING.'
