Vanguard and US Sailing Expand Partnership

Portsmouth, R.I. (November 14, 2006) – US SAILING, national governing body of the sport, and Vanguard Sailboats, a leading manufacturer of small sailboats, have announced a partnership expansion. The expansion consists of sponsorship of the 2007 U.S. Junior Triplehanded Championship and, under the new agreement, Vanguard will supply new Nomad sailboats for the event as well as provide additional support. The new agreement comes a year after US SAILING and Vanguard announced an extension and expansion of its previous partnership.

“Once again Vanguard Sailboats steps up to the plate, this time to provide our youth sailors with an opportunity to test their triplehanded skills on a modern platform complete with an asymmetrical kite,” said Dan Cooney, US SAILING’s Marketing Director. “Vanguard goes well beyond supplying the boats for many of our Championships, they work hand in hand with us to enhance the quality of these competitions.”

“Vanguard is happy to support US SAILING’s U.S. Junior Triplehanded Championship with a fleet of new Nomads. The Juniors racing these boats will find a responsive, modern one-design and the organizers will be able to spend more time and effort running the event rather than organizing borrowed boats.” said Vanguard President Chip Johns.
