Marcel KOSTER, from Breitling Netherlands, said during the press conference, 'We were looking for a high standard sailing regatta in Holland to connect our name to and for us this regatta was a logical choice.'
He continued, 'All the top sailors, national and international will be present. This high level in sailing and event reflects the Breitling brand.'
For both Breitling and the Breitling organization this partnership is a logical step forward. Sporting excellence and fantastic imagery suit both parties perfectly.
On behalf to the organization of the Breitling Regatta, Henri VAN DER AAT said, 'We are very enthusiastic about this new partnership. We see it as a big chance to take this regatta to a higher level. To make sailing more attractive for the spectators, the finals will be sailed from Saturday evening and close to the shore. Together with the competitors, the crew and all the other sponsors we will make this a very successful week.'
