Sponsor revealed for Cowes Week

The title sponsor of the 2011 Cowes Week has been announced as being global investment management group Aberdeen Asset Management PLC.

This means that the annual sailing regatta on the Isle of Wight will now take the name Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week, after a three-year deal was agreed between the company and the organisers of the event.

Martin Gilbert, chief executive of Aberdeen Asset Management, stated that he was proud his firm is involved with such a prestigious sailing gathering.

"We are very much looking forward to enhancing the experience of both the crews and spectators who will descend upon the Isle of Wight later this year," he said.

This year, Cowes Week will get underway on August 6th to 13th, with the 1,000 expected entrants into the regatta to benefit from reduced race fees as a result of the sponsorship deal.

Earlier this month, Boss Watches was revealed as an official partner of Cowes Week 2011, furthering the brand's association with sailing which began in 2003.
