Quantum Key West Race Week kicked off late last month in Old Town Key West. It was the 29th year for the international regatta, this year hosted by Storm Trysail Club (the notorious host of Block Island Race Week) for the first time. For the past two years Chelsea Clock has been a proud trophy sponsor, and this year -- our third -- felt extra special.
Apart from being a beloved maritime event, this year Quantum Key West Race Week 2016 participated in Sailors for the Sea’s Clean Regattas Program. The Clean Regattas program is currently the only sustainability certification for water-based events in the world. Chelsea Clock has a long, storied relationship with the sea and supports making the 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 received Chelsea Carbon Fiber Flag clocks mounted on solid mahogany bases with personalized brass engraving plates. We felt the Carbon Fiber Flag clock was a perfect fit for this event due to its etched carbon-fiber dial with brightly colored nautical flags!
