2018, 2019, 2020
Starting in 2018, 11th Hour Racing and the Yacht Racing Forum have formed a three-year sponsorship to advance sustainable practices within the marine industry, sailing event management, and team operations. Additionally, the organizations will collaborate on how to integrate relevant sustainability content throughout conference programming – showcasing sustainability at off the water yachting events.
This partnership will engage the sailing community in conversations and continued behavior change with regards to implementing sustainability best practices and restoring ocean health. Some of the initiatives planned:
The Yacht Racing Forum is the leading annual conference for the business of sailing and yacht racing. The Business & Marketing conference focuses on the commercial aspects of the sport: sponsorship, event organization, marketing, communication, venues, yacht clubs. It is a must-attend event for organizers, sailing teams, venues, sponsors, yacht clubs and agencies in the yacht racing industry.
