Elan Yachts on board to Sponsor the RNZYS Elan Yachts Commodores Cup for the 3rd consecutive year
Elan Yachts are back on board to sponsor this season’s prestigious RNZYS Commodores Cup Series, making this their 3rd year as naming sponsor for this popular series.
Elan Yachts New Zealand Managing Director, Grant Saunders says the company is proud to continue their support of the 2017/18 Commodores Cup Series – “We’re thrilled to be partnering with the RNZYS for the second consecutive year of the Elan Yachts Commodores Cup Series,” says Saunders. “It’s the squadron’s most prestigious racing series on the sailing calendar, and we look forward to following the progress of the crews as the five races unfold.”
The Commodores Cup series is a mainstay on the Squadrons summer sailing calendar, and encompasses 5 longer course races beginning with this weekend’s Round Rangitoto Island Race. The remaining 4 races are the famous Night Race to Kawau Island, the Round Kawau Island Race, the Te Kouma Race to the Coromandel, and the Haystack Race.
The series has 6 different divisions which allows yachts of all types and sizes to be fairly included, whether you have a TP52 or a cruising multi-hull – there is a division for all.
RNZYS Commodore Steve Mair is thrilled to have Elan Yachts back on board as a major sponsor of the series – “Elan Yachts have been fantastic supporters of this series for the last two years and it is superb to have them back as naming sponsors. The Commodores Cup is our oldest and one of the most popular sailing series at the Squadron and we hope this sponsorship will help to continue its success into the future.”
Elan Yachts New Zealand has recently moved closer to the RNZYS, opening a new brokerage office at 103-115 Westhaven Drive, Westhaven (under Sails Restaurant).
Elan Yachts and the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron look forward to getting the series underway this Saturday, and hope to see as many of you on the water as possible.
