Cowes Week Ltd are delighted to announce Yachts & Yachting, the leading performance sailing magazine, as the Official Media Partner for the regatta with immediate effect.
Commenting on the new partnership, Simon Temlett, Publisher, said,
“2017 is a special year for Yachts & Yachting as we celebrate its 70th anniversary. One of the world’s oldest and largest regattas, Cowes Week is a highlight of the sailing calendar and, since 1947, the regatta coverage has been much-loved by our readers. By formalising our association as Official Media Partner we can build on the relationship that has been established between the regatta and the magazine over the years, enabling us to provide additional value for our readers and advertisers, the regatta, its sponsors and partners and the official charity.”
With many exciting activities planned for the regatta this year, not least the newly introduced Triple Crown mini-series for big boats, the partnership with Yachts & Yachting will enable Cowes Week to further engage with competitors and visitors and keep them up to date with all the event news.
This partnership includes an exclusive Cowes Week digital souvenir guide, regatta preview, post-event race reports, news and features running over the next few months, all supported with digital coverage and social media posts.
Cowes Week Ltd is also delighted to announce another addition to their family of supporting sponsors as TNG joins Cowes Week as the Official Timing Partner for the 2017 and 2018 editions of the famous event.
Inspired by a passion for water sports and sailing in particular, TNG Swiss Watches has developed and produced an outstanding, high-quality range of watches in collaboration with their own Swiss watch makers. The collection sets a new benchmark for nautical time pieces and will be the centrepiece of a stunning retail unit situated on Cowes Parade during the event. This range of watches, comprising 15 ‘Classic’ and ‘Sport’ models, will also feature a new official “Cowes Week” watch that is being introduced exclusively for the regatta.
