Hamilton Princess backs Stars+Stripes sailing team
The Hamilton Princess has sponsored an American yacht team in an international sailing competition.
The Hamilton Princess and Beach Club welcomed Stars+Stripes when they arrived in Bermuda last week for the Match Racing World Championship & Bermuda Gold Cup.
The event, which started last Sunday and is scheduled to finish on Friday, involves 16 teams competing against each other in a sailing race around Hamilton Harbour every day.
Stars+Stripes and support staff will stay at the Hamilton Princess during their stay and wear the hotel’s logo on their kit during the race.
Tim Morrison, the general manager of Hamilton Princess, said: “We are proud to be hosting Stars+Stripes during their first competitive foray in Bermuda in 2020.
“This is an incredibly exciting time for Bermuda in terms of sports and we are extremely pleased to be able to play a role.”
Stars+Stripes won the Bermuda Gold Cup when they last visited the island.
Mike Buckley, the chairman and skipper of Stars+Stripes, said: “We are so excited to be partnering with Bermuda’s iconic Hamilton Princess & Beach Club during our time in on the island.
“This is our first competition overseas since the beginning of the pandemic and, given how well the island and hotel are handling it, we can’t think of anywhere we would rather be.”
