The US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider’s National Team Tour brings the excitement of high-performance sailing and first-hand stories of Olympic and Paralympic campaigning to passionate sailors, young and old. The speaking series, which is sponsored by Chubb Personal Insurance, will visit yacht clubs around the country over the next three years in the lead up to the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
“Yacht club support is critical to the success of U.S. Olympic and Paralympic sailors,” said Josh Adams, Managing Director of U.S. Olympic Sailing (Essex, Mass.). “The National Team Tour will bring Americans closer to the experiences of US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider athletes. Along the way, we aim to inspire the next generation of Olympians."
Fans will be treated to a video showing how sailors are preparing for the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games, followed by a question and answer panel. Team giveaways and a photo/autograph session complete the evening.
