Becomes official sponsor.

Winning Appliances has been confirmed as the official sponsor of Cruising Yacht Club Australia. Winning Group CEO, John Winning said the two companies share long established histories, strong values, innovation and the pursuit to be leaders in their respective fields.

“My family has been involved in sailing for over four generations,” Winning said.

“Sailing is also one of my passions and in the past few years, I have competed in two Sydney to Hobart races, including last year where I skippered the Winning Appliances boat and sailed with my father. Our family boat, JBW, which is skippered by Andrew Copley, has been the radio relay vessel and mothership for the Sydney to Hobart since 2005 and will perform the same role keeping the entrants safe, in this year’s race. Through my family and my experiences, we have seen first hand the incredible job the CYCA does to promote the sport of ocean racing in Australia and around the world.

“We are honoured to have our name associated with the CYCA and we look forward to a long partnership.”

CYCA Commodore Paul Billingham said Winning Appliances has already provided assistance to the Club through the long-term use of JBW, a vital support vessel in themajor races including the Rolex Sydney Hobart.

“We look forward to continuing a long and prosperous partnership and thank John and the Winning family for their ongoing support.”
