Cruising Yacht Club of Australia Youth Sailing Academy announced that GME Electronics has renewed their sponsorship of the GME Elliott 6.0m, one of the CYCA’s Youth Sailing Academy training vessels, for a further three years. With over 50 years’ experience in the marine and electronic business, GME is regarded as the premium market leader of quality innovative electronic products.

Anthony Dunn, Director of Standard Communications/GME, said the ongoing sponsorship of the CYCA’s Youth Sailing Academy shows their commitment to the sport of sailing and ensures the future growth of the sport in Australia. 'GME is delighted to continue to support the development and success of the CYCA Youth Sailing Academy. The development of sailing is foremost in the Australian sporting culture and resembles a parallel in our industry to produce world leading sailors and marine electronic products alike.'

'On behalf of GME we wish the CYCA Youth Sailing Academy every success and look forward to closely watching and assisting the development and success of the next Australian champion sailors,' Dunn concluded.

Commodore Howard Piggott thanked GME for their continued support of youth sailing. 'The Cruising Yacht Club of Australia prides itself on providing one of the leading youth sailing academies in Australia. Elliott sponsorship is vital to the ongoing maintenance of the training fleet and provides support for the many programs and regattas that the CYCA’s Youth Sailing Academy conducts,' said Commodore Piggott.

'A new fleet of Elliott 7.0m boats will be launched in August next year to coincide with the 20 year anniversary of the foundation of the Youth Sailing Academy. A program of activities is currently being planned to mark this occasion,' he added.

Currently, the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia has sponsorship opportunities available for the Youth Sailing Academy Elliotts. Interested parties should contact Mark Woolf, Chief Executive Officer on mark.woolf(at)cyca.com.au or 8292 7800 for further information.
