back to press releases

Marblehead, Mass - Terra Nova Trading, L.L.C. is the new Title Sponsor for Yachting Key West Race Week. The popular winter rendezvous of the world's greatest sailors celebrates its 15th year at the tip of the Florida Keys next January. As many as 300 national and international yachts, featuring the world's latest designs and technology will compete over five days in the waters off Key West. The new name of the event is Terra Nova Trading / Yachting Key West Race Week.

"The people attracted to Yachting Key West Race Week, and its reputation as the best regatta in the U.S. were key factors in our decision to affiliate with this event", said Chris Doubek, President of Terra Nova Trading. "A commitment to success and team-effort are hallmarks of Terra Nova Trading and Key West."

Peter Craig, Race Chairman and Event Director, hailed the Terra Nova Trading sponsorship as a significant boost for the regatta and the sport of sailing. "Terra Nova's management is sending a strong message that they are optimistic about the future and that they believe in the sport of
sailing. With Terra Nova Trading's support, we can continue our commitment to set the standard that makes Race Week the number one choice for racing sailors everywhere." 

Terra Nova Trading, L.L.C. (member NASD, SIPC & PCX), is recognized as an innovative leader in Electronic Direct Access Trading. The Chicago-based firm enables customers to electronically route orders to major markets and ECN's. They recently received Barron's Magazine's highest ranking awarded for trade execution quality, which is considered to be the single most important factor in a trader's choice of brokers (one other firm received the same rating). 

Terra Nova Trading's technology partner, Townsend Analytics, Ltd., is the developer of the premier real-time trading platform, RealTick®, which is also a Key West sponsor. RealTick caters to both institutional and retail brokerage clients. RealTick is a registered trademark of Townsend Analytics, Ltd.

Stuart and MarrGwen Townsend of Townsend Analytics, along with Chris Doubek, are no strangers to the sport of sailboat racing. Together, they have actively campaigned the Townsends' Mumm 30, VIRAGO, at Race Week in recent years. 

Founded in 1987 by Yachting Magazine, Key West Race Week continues to grow in stature. Last year, in 2001, a record fleet of 326 boats traveled from 20 different countries and 32 states to compete against the best sailors in the world. Early entries and projections from one design classes support expectations for another strong turnout next January. Premiere Racing has committed to four separate racing divisions to ensure quality One Design, PHRF and IMS racing.

Yachting Magazine and Event Manager Premiere Racing, Inc. are pleased to welcome all sponsors and suppliers to the 2002 Race Week. Returning sponsors include Mount Gay Rum, Lewmar Marine and Saucony. Mount Gay Rum has participated in the 14 Race Weeks held thus far. They have a long association with this event-and with sailors everywhere. For the third consecutive year, Lewmar Marine will present the Lewmar Trophy to the top Group 1 owner-driven boat in the IMS class. Saucony, an Official Supplier, again brings shoreside competition to Race Week with the popular Saucony 5K Fun Run. 

Two companies joining Race Week for the first time this year are Pearson Yachts and Sampson Rope Technologies. Pearson Yachts brings a new design to Race Week in the form of their True North 38, the first in their new series of fast family cruisers. Sampson Rope Technologies, the largest rope manufacturer in the western hemisphere, is the official cordage for Race Week. They are experts in current rope applications and are dedicated to ensuring the evolution of rope design.

The Key West business community and the Florida Keys and Key West Tourist Development Council have been strong supporters of the event in recent years, helping to ensure the long-term success of the regatta. In 1999, Race Week found a new, long-term home at the newly renovated Historic Seaport at the Key West Bight. 

"Support from our sponsors plays an important role in enabling Premiere Racing to produce an event with standards that match the competition on the water", said Craig. "We encourage all racing sailors to show their appreciation and patronize these terrific companies that participate in our sport and sponsor Terra Nova Trading / Yachting Key West Race Week." 

Racing at Terra Nova Trading Yachting / Key West Race Week takes place Monday-Friday, January 21 - 25 with registration on Sunday, January 20.
