Rolex Watch USA has announced its continuing sponsorship of US Sailing’s 2002 regattas

Rolex Watch USA, which has been supporting sailing excellence for over four decades, has returned for its sixth year to sponsor US Sailing’s 2002 adult sailing regattas. The events, which begin in May and continue through November, will be hosted by nine different yacht clubs throughout the country and utilise direct subsidies from the Rolex sponsorship to improve the quality of racing.

Offered in conjunction with most of the regattas is a pre-event Rolex clinic where competitors will have the opportunity to improve their racing experience through practical skill development and individual coaching. Rolex’s US Sailing support also makes possible an informative US Sailing championship poster that includes junior regatta dates and hangs in over 700 member yacht clubs and sailing organisations across the country.
