Sail magazine and the World Cruising Club announced an exclusive media partnership extending through December 2013.

As part of this partnership, Sail will promote the cruising club's American-based sailing events, including the Caribbean 1500, ARC Europe and this week's Atlantic Cup through editorial coverage in all Sail media. As the club's exclusive U.S. media partner, Sail will have direct access to the club's offshore cruising fleets.

"Our partnership with WCC fits with Sail's mission to reach the active sailor and boat owner," publisher Josh Adams said in a statement. "All of our readers will benefit from these sailors' experiences."

The cruising club, based in Cowes, England, is a global offshore cruising event organizer. It has been organizing rallies since 1986, and more than 500 boats and more than 2,600 people take part in cruising club events every year.

Sail magazine, the Sail Buyer's Guide, the New Sailboat Review and their digital properties are owned by Source Interlink Media.
