Atlantis WeatherGear sponsors Massachusetts regatta

Atlantis WeatherGear announced that it signed on as the official apparel partner for the Corinthian Classic Yacht Regatta.

The event, presented by Officine Panerai, is being hosted by the Corinthian Yacht Club in Marblehead, Mass., and will be sailed Aug. 11-12 on Massachusetts Bay.

Atlantis will provide prizes for owners of the top-placing yachts in each division, as well as event apparel for the organizing committee and to be offered for sale on site at the event.

“We’re thrilled to be a part of classic yachting in general, and especially the Corinthian Classic Yacht Regatta,” Atlantis president Chaz Bertrand, owner of a Herreshoff Rosinante, said in a statement. “It’s really exciting to have a classic yachting event of this magnitude here in our backyard, and we expect it to continue to grow and thrive.”

“I can’t think of a better sailing apparel brand to have involved with our event,” event co-chairman Bruce Dyson said. “Atlantis is a great brand and their designs have strong appeal among the classic yachting crowd.”
