Quantum Key West Race Week kicks off this Sunday with the official weigh-in and welcoming reception held at Kelly’s Caribbean Bar & Grill in Old Town Key West. The international regatta is in its 29th year and is hosted this year by Storm Trysail Club (the well-known host of Block Island Race Week) for the first time. Chelsea Clock has been a proud trophy sponsor for the past two years, and this year will be no different!
Why We Love It:
Apart from being a beloved maritime event, Quantum Key West Race Week 2016 is participating in Sailors for the Sea’s Clean Regattas Program this year. The Clean Regattas program is currently the world’s only sustainability certification for water-based events. By focusing on both education and action, the program aims to unite and mobilize sailors by offering support and resources that help protect and conserve the ocean. Chelsea Clock has a long, storied relationship with the sea and supports reviving our oceans by making the entire maritime industry ecofriendly and sustainable, and we applaud Storm Trysail Club for taking this important and necessary step.
About the Trophies:
Ten winners from both pro and amateur classes will receive beautiful Chelsea Carbon Fiber Flag clocks mounted on hand-rubbed solid mahogany bases accompanied by a brass engraving plate. The Carbon Fiber Flag clock is a perfect fit for this event as it features an etched carbon fiber dial with bright colored nautical flags representing the numerals, while stylish sport hands add to its dramatic look. Please join us in wishing the best of luck to all participants!
