"CATEGORY C" ADVERTISING

         
 

Premiere Racing requires a fee for advertising on racing sail boats at Acura Key West 2009. We re-implemented this in 2007, having done so in previous years until ISAF took that right away from event organizers. ISAF revised their position and event organizers can again charge a fee for entrants that advertise on their hull, sails or boom.   

If a company wishes to display advertising on a boat in order to benefit from the opportunities that the event presents, it is appropriate and reasonable that a contribution should be made towards the running of the regatta that they will be advertising at.

Official event sponsors pay for the right to be visibly associated with the event, and they pay significantly more than the advertising fee to be collected from those entries that advertise. 

If your boat is displaying advertising, but you determine that your particular arrangement is not cost justified, then you should remove the advertising prior to the start of the first race.

The advertising fee is equal to the entry fee and is payable at the time of entry, as stated in the Notice of Race (full text below). Any advertising must be in accordance with the current Racing Rules of Sailing.  

We ask that competitors respect the brand exclusivity of the Official Sponsors of this event (displayed on the main page of the event web site). Their participation enhances the event for all competitors.
