RYA Look for Worlds Sponsors.


The Royal Yachting Association (RYA) is looking for a title sponsor to head up the four sailing regatta weeks which will make up one of sailings largest international events; the Laser World Championships to be held in Britain in 2010.

The event, set to attract over 1200 world class competitors from around the globe, will be held at two separate venues.

The Scottish Sailing Institute at Largs Sailing Club will welcome more than 500 sailors, including aspiring 2012 hopefuls for the Laser Radial Women’s and Men’s World Championships from 7-14 July 2010, with the Laser Radial Youth Worlds to follow from 18-25 July.

Meanwhile, Hayling Island Sailing Club will see in the region of 300 budding Olympic Champions contest the Laser (Standard) Senior and Junior World Championships from 27 August-5 September 2010, with the Laser Masters Worlds from 11-19 September welcoming around 400 sailors in four age categories from 35 years and upwards.

RYA Competitions Manager David Campbell-James commented: “This opportunity provides a fantastic platform for association with a hugely popular international sailing event.

“We look forward to working with a sponsor who shares the RYA’s passion for increasing national interest in sailing and showcasing Britain as a World Class sporting venue.”

The sponsorship opportunity will provide exposure to the world’s largest class in sailing as well as branding rights and association with a highly regarded World Class event.
