Leading global logistics company Peters & May announces a new sponsorship with the prestigious New York Yacht Club Regatta Association (NYYC RA), that will see Peters & May become the official yacht shipping and logistics sponsor of NYYC RA in 2023, 2024 and 2025.

The tailored yacht shipping logistics service that Peters & May provides dovetails perfectly with the New York Yacht Club's distinct focus on competitive sailing. Steeped in heritage beginning nearly two centuries ago, the Club will host the 170th edition of its Annual Regatta, the oldest annual sailing competition in North American, in June of 2024.

The new sponsorship will have Peters & May team working with the New York Yacht Club to ensure all Club members and participants of Club-hosted regattas, including all national and international regattas, have expert transport services easily accessible. This includes events such as the 2024 ORC World Championship and the 2024 TP52 World Championship.

"It is an honour to be working with the New York Yacht Club Regatta Association" said Craig Stanbury, Global Operations Director - Racing at Peters & May. "At the heart of this strategic alliance lies a shared commitment to elevate the world of sailing. This relationship will undoubtedly open new horizons for members and participants alike, affording them unparalleled access to the diverse sailing destinations we can offer.

"Our team is comprised of some of the most highly skilled yacht handling professionals and this sponsorship will give us the opportunity to showcase the skills that we have spent the last 50 years honing, to both private individuals and New York Yacht Club members worldwide."

Racing yacht logistics can often be critical in one's participation in a race and Peters & May provides a full suite of services to meet customer requirements. Abiding by strict time constraints, it is well versed in overcoming ship availability and space challenges, as well as ensuring the required customs documentation is gathered. With Peters & May on board, New York Yacht Club members can feel confident in the run up to their race, incurring minimal stress along the way.

Peters & May also celebrates its own milestone this year of 50 years in delivering world-class international logistics services. Beginning as a freight forwarding company in 1973, the company soon evolved and earned its reputation as one of the most trusted logistics providers in the world. With a global network of trusted agents and partners, it occupies 10 offices across Europe, Asia and the United States, with its main U.S. office located in Fort Lauderdale. From sailing and racing yachts to motorboats or superyachts, its expert loadmasters customise each lift to suit the specific needs of each vessel to ensure flawless lifts every time.

Founded in 1844, the New York Yacht Club is one of the most renowned yacht clubs in the world, and occupies two distinguished clubhouses in New York, N.Y., and Newport, R.I., where it hosts some of the most coveted events every year.

"Whether it's bringing the world to Newport to compete in one of our regattas, or enabling our members to cruise Europe, the Southern Hemisphere and elsewhere, reliable and efficient yacht shipping is an essential service," says New York Yacht Club Commodore Paul M. Zabetakis, M.D. "A partnership with Peters & May, one of the world's foremost companies when it comes to yacht transportation, is a win-win for our members and our events. We're very pleased to have Peters & May join our family of regatta partners for at least the next three seasons."

Both Peters & May and the New York Yacht Club have established a synonymous presence with many prestigious cruising and racing events. The new sponsorship has tremendous potential.

In addition to providing transport services to various racing and regatta events, Peters & May also offers regular shipments to most destinations worldwide.
