July 24, 2012 (MARBLEHEAD, Mass.) - Atlantis WeatherGear, America's fastest-growing brand of apparel for sailing and the coastal lifestyle, today announced that they have signed on as Official Apparel Partner for the Corinthian Classic Yacht Regatta - presented by Officine Panerai (www.panerai.com).

Atlantis' ties to classic yachting are strong and deep. Headquartered in the old Graves Yacht Yard on Marblehead Harbor, builders of many well-known classic yachts, the company has a unique connection to the town's yachting heritage. And as an almost 40-year-old brand, Atlantis has been aboard many of these yachts over the years and kept their crews dry and comfortable.
Atlantis will provide prizes for owners of the top-placing yachts in each division as well as event apparel for the organizing committee and to be offered for sale on-site at the event.
"We're thrilled to be a part of classic yachting in general, and especially the Corinthian Classic Yacht Regatta." offered Atlantis President Chaz Bertrand, owner of a Herreshoff Rosinante. "It's really exciting to have a classic yachting event of this magnitude here in our backyard, and we expect it to continue to grow and thrive."
Atlantis salutes the growing trend toward restoring and racing these rare nautical treasures. Several of the company's staffers compete regularly on the US classic circuit, and many Atlantis designs are inspired by the rich heritage and tradition embodied by these beautiful yachts.
"I can't think of a better sailing apparel brand to have involved with our event," said event co-chair Bruce Dyson. "Atlantis is a great brand, and their designs have strong appeal among the classic yachting crowd. Having Atlantis providing the prizes will give everyone a bit more incentive to get around the race course a bit quicker, so the cocktail party may start a bit earlier!"
The Atlantis 2012 product line is available online at the brand new Atlantis web site (www.AtlantisWeatherGear.com) and via the Atlantis WeatherGear Dealer Network.
