The nautical lifestyle brand Sperry Top-Sider recently announced a major sponsorship agreement with 30 Olympic-caliber sailors to form Team Sperry, a group of world champions from Croatia, France, Great Britain and the United States.

Team Sperry represents world-class racers, including the current top three ISAF-ranked teams in women's match racing and three of the top four Finn sailors, two 2008 Olympic medalists and a host of gold, silver and bronze world champion medalists.

The Team Sperry athletes were introduced at the Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta, which ran June 6-11 at Weymouth and Portland in the U.K.

“We are thrilled to announce our partnership with these world-class athletes and are looking forward to helping the members of Team Sperry achieve their dreams of reaching the podium in Weymouth in 2012,” company president Craig Reingold said in a statement. “The expertise of the Team Sperry sailors and their collaboration with our product development organization will assist us and, over time, benefit all sailors looking for the most technically advanced footwear to elevate and enhance their performance.”
