The Nacra 17 & 49er International Classes are thrilled to announce our partnership with FORWARD WIP becoming our Official Technical Clothing Partner.

The five-year sponsorship agreement will run until the end of 2024 and will see both partners work collaboratively to further develop and market the sport in new and existing territory.

Thanks to a long expericence in designing light and innovative protective gear for the last 2 America’s Cup and SuperFoiler Australian Circuit, Forward WIP is one of the leader in Foiling Action Sailing equipment. Since, many of Olympic Sailors choose WIP for the combination of protection with performance and style.

With the arrival of the foils on the Nacra17, the 49er which remains a spectacular and fast boat, and the hard work of the International Class on safety measures for years, there are real and good synergies between these three classes and Forward WIP.

As well as promoting its partnership through branding and associations with sailing’s top Olympic athletes, Forward WIP will provide the 49er, 49erFX, and Nacra17 sailors and fans with a range of apparel and equipment at discount prices.

Confirming the partnership, Martin Bertrand, Forward WIP’s Sports Marketing Manager said, “We are really happy to be associated with these three classes. Foiling cat and Skiff sailing are part of our DNA and we have always been passionate about Olympic racing with some of the world’s best athletes. Forward WIP has developed their technical clothing side by side with sailors, and we are proud to support them on their Road to Paris 2024. We are ready to start this collaboration with the great International Class team, these three incredible boats support with whom we share the same strong values.”

Marcus Spillane, President of the 49er and Nacra17 classes, said “We are thrilled to be working with Forward WIP for the development of our sailors, and sailors around the world.”

Welcome to Victoria, the events capital of Australia and proud hosts of the 2020 Sailing World Championships at the Royal Geelong Yacht Club.

Visitors to Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula will love its sun-kissed beaches, the world-renowned Great Ocean Road and great food and wine and unique wildlife.

Victoria is home to some of the best regional events in Australia including the Festival of Sails, Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race, National Celtic Festival and Queenscliff Winter Weekend.

With more local and international visitors travelling to regional Victoria than ever before, these events give us a great chance to showcase our beautiful regions to new people and we’re proud to support them through the $20 million Regional Events Fund.

Since 2014 the Andrews Labor Government has supported more than 180 regional events. These events keep our bars, restaurants and hotels busy and boosts local economies.
