Sevenstar Yacht Transport is to sponsor a new regatta as part of Cowes Week

Sevenstar Yacht Transport is to take naming rights to the new Triple Crown at Cowes Week 2017. The new initiative is a regatta within a regatta, open to large IRC rated racing boats up to 36m LOA.

Three classes will compete: maxi-racer class; cruiser-racer class (both with a minimum TCC of 1.500) and an ocean-racer class (minimum TCC of 1.400).

The series will take place on the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of Cowes Week, with the Wednesday race being designated an Around the Island Race.

“Sevenstar Yacht Transport is proud to be the named sponsor of the Sevenstar Triple Crown at Cowes Week,” said Wouter Verbraak, head of Sevenstar Racing Yacht Logistics. “A fantastic new initiative in addition to the already world renowned sailing event in the Solent.”

Kate Johnson, commercial and marketing director for Cowes Week added: “We’re thrilled that Sevenstar Yacht Transport is joining us as title sponsor of the Triple Crown.

“This is an exciting new development for Cowes Week and we’re very appreciative of the support of Sevenstar Yacht Transport, a great fit for the initiative which we’re sure will be welcomed by competitors and spectators alike.”

This year’s regatta takes place July 29 to August 5.
