“This race for the King Edward VII Gold Cup is one of most prestigious on the match race circuit and it’s also one of Bermuda’s great traditions.”
“The Royal Bermuda Yacht Club does an outstanding job organizing this event and our multi-year sponsorship will help them continue to attract some of the world’s best sailors while showcasing Bermuda as an ideal sailing venue.”
“An important component of the event and our sponsorship is the Family Festival of Sail,” continued Watson. “The festival provides an opportunity for young local people and families to experience the excitement of the sport and to celebrate our community.”
