Stars + Stripes will use race gear from Musto’s Foiling Collection.

Performance-sailing equipment gear maker Musto has been named the exclusive official sailing apparel sponsor of Stars + Stripes, one of two U.S. challengers for the 36 America’s Cup.

The team, which is backed by the Long Beach Yacht Club, is building its AC75 foiling monohull sailboat and Musto will provide pieces from its Foiling Collection.

“The new AC75 class is exposing sailors to speeds up to 60 mph and teams are choosing only the best people and companies to partner with,” Paul Stoneham, executive chairman of Musto, said in a statement. “We couldn’t be prouder to give Stars + Stripes our support from Musto’s dedicated and highly experienced R&D, design and development teams.”

Added helmsman and co-founder of Stars + Stripes Taylor Canfield, “Our team has committed itself to victory, but we’re only as good as the sum of our parts — the gear is an integral part of what will help us win the America’s Cup.”
