Cowes Week Ltd, organisers of the world's best-known sailing regatta, 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.
The 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.
Kate Johnson, Commercial & Marketing Director for CWL said,
“We’re thrilled to be able to announce this partnership. Working with Yachts & Yachting as part of a more formal relationship will give us the opportunity to really showcase many of the developments in the Cowes Week regatta to an audience that is actively involved and interested in the world of racing. Yachts & Yachting readers will hear Cowes Week news first and we will benefit from the magazine’s deep insight into the views of their readership”
