Wednesday sailing at Oakcliff will now be known as the Sunsail Series. Beginning May 6 every Oakcliff Supporter who races at least 5 Wednesdays will receive a 5% discount on a Sunsail charter over the winter. If they form and sail as a team 5 times they receive an additional 5% when they charter as a group. Oakcliff is also a US Sailing Team Sperry Training Center and if supporters are members of US Sailing they can pile up an additional 5% discount.
Brittany Weatherby, Marketing Manager for Sunsail says “We are looking forward to working together with Oakcliff to grow their already successful summer racing program. It is great to see so many adults working to improve their skills in this strong program. Seeing their hard work paying off while sailing through the Caribbean will be a great pleasure. This partnership embodies what Sunsail believes in for the future of sailing: people living their dreams and embracing new adventures at any age.”
The Sunsail series is sailed in Oakcliff’s Match 40s and Shields and run by Sagamore Yacht Club. Oakcliff provides real-time coaching during the fleet racing with prebriefs and debriefs at their America’s Cup style campus in Oyster Bay New York.
