Clean Report – WORLD EXCLUSIVE
The folks at VOR love to tease you with cutesy non-announcements, but there’s a reason you rarely see similar tactics in the world of high-flying PR. The reason? Because it gets guys like me charged up to dig into the story before Volvo deigns to release it.
So when we got the “Team 4 Confirmed” news from the VOR staff, we started burning the FaceTwitSkype lines, and it didn’t take long to get the world exclusive story for our readers – and that story is great news for anyone who wants to see offshore racing in the USA reach the kind of audience that only the VOR can.
We can now confirm that an American-led team is BACK in the race under the able leadership of Charlie Enright and Mark Towill. While we won’t tell you who they are, we can also confirm that the two sponsors we’ve learned of are great partners for the sport of sailing, and we’re stoked to see them involved in the race. There are also some interesting dynamics involved in the new team, but now that we’ve busted open the biggest mystery, we’ll save that news for you for a bit.
If you’re in the Newport area you can find out more at the Tuesday press conference, and we promise to have the first big interview with the boys once the news has been officially announced. Talk about it here.
