VOLVO has been confirmed to continue as an official sponsor for Cowes Week Ltd.

The company has been an official sponsor since 2013 and has been a key sponsor of sailing in Britain since 1999 and has long been associated with the sport across the globe.

It will continue its support for the famous sailing regatta from July 29 to August 5.

Kylee Rush, events and sponsorship manager for Volvo Cars UK, said: ‘Volvo’s heritage supporting British sailing makes our partnership with Cowes Week a natural fit.

‘A highlight of the British summer season, Cowes Week gives us the opportunity to work with our partners across Volvo Ocean Race and British Sailing to celebrate the best of sailing at all levels, while also showcasing our latest cars to visitors.’

Kate Johnson, commercial director of CWL, praised the ‘great relationship’.
