The International 49er Class and International Nacra 17 Class are delighted to announce their partnership with renowned sailing apparel manufacturer Magic Marine.
Magic Marine is a favourite of numerous top sailors across the entire spectrum of the sport, and the partnership will see the Magic Marine brand appear at the upcoming European Championship and Junior World Championship venues, on Championship websites, social media, communications and across video distribution channels.
The resumption of the sponsorship, which was initiated in 2013, comes after the 49er Class spent a year away, but reaffirms Magic Marine as a family member of the 49er Class. Additionally, the sponsorship extends to the Nacra 17 class for the first time. Together, these three classes and Magic Marine bring together these spectacular sailboats and wonderful sailing apparel.
As well as promoting its partnership through branding and associations with sailing’s top Olympic athletes, Magic Marine will provide the 49er, 49erFX, and Nacra 17 sailors and our fans with a range of apparel and equipment at discount prices. The sponsorship support includes on-site Championship merchandising and online availability.
Confirming the partnership, Claire Blom, Magic Marine’s Marketing Director said, “Skiff sailing & foiling cat sailing continues to grow as an attractive aspect of the sport and it’s a thrill to be associated with some of the world’s best athletes. Magic Marine has developed our technical clothing side by side with sailors, and we are proud to support them on their Road to Tokyo. Our continued partnership demonstrates the strength and value of the Magic Marine, 49er, and Nacra 17 brands.”
Marcus Spillane, President of the 49er and Nacra 17 Classes, said “Magic Marine is a superb champion of high performance sailing and their support is a huge boost in our efforts to promote this exciting style of sailing and our sailors. We are delighted that Magic marine will be with us as the Tokyo Olympics get closer. Magic Marine’s drive for excellence matches our own and we are proud to continue our partnership.”
