The Rigging Company J24 ECC sponsor 2017

The Rigging Company LLP (TRC) is proud to announce that it is a primary sponsor in the 39th year of the J24 East Coast Championship and J22 Mid-Atlantic Championship. This event takes place in late October starting 10/27-10/29. The venue is being held at one of Annapolis’ top sailing clubs Severn Sailing Association. J24 local legend and 2016 defending champion, Tony Parker of Parker Tide Corp. will return to defend his title.

The event promises 3 days of some of Annapolis’ most competitive sailing along with one of the best places in the US to sail in fall, the Chesapeake Bay. Some of this years perks will include:

  • TRC will be offering pre and post event mast stepping and boat set up/ break down assistance. Scheduling is required. Please call our office at 443-847-1004 or email jimmie@theriggingco.com.
  • TRC will also have two staff members standing-by at the end of each race day to help provide racers with any necessary rigging related products and services.
  • TRC will also be standing by all weekend with the TRC service truck and will offer extended hours just for the regatta. Please call us at 443-847-1004 or email aaron@theriggingco.com for any during regatta emergencies.
  • There are also some very courteous locals that are opening their homes for free housing and boat storage to out of town race competitors. Please note: due to limited availability housing and storage will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. Contact the fleet leader, Kelly at brice.fitzgerald@gmail.com or call 443-600-1182 for info.
  • As usual there will some festivities Saturday and Sunday including plenty of food, and one of my favorite parts, there will be beer on tap daily. I am hoping that Heavy Seas Brewery may have something to do with this.
