Throughout 2016 SLAM® has been the official supplier, partner and sponsor of pioneering companies within the sailing world
SLAM® was created in Genoa in 1979 from a eureka moment had by a group of friends with a passion for sailing. They came up with the idea of developing a line of cutting-edge products in order to substantially increase sailors' comfort and performance. Over the coming years, the Genoa-based company became synonymous with technology, expertise, excellence and passion within the sailing world and nautical sports in general. As testament to its success, the Genoa company went on to become the official supplier of pioneering companies within the sailing world, such as the Maxi Yacht and Swan Cup regattas of the Costa Smeralda Yacht Club, the Azzurra team and the winter regattas of Monaco Yacht Club.
SLAM® is the technical sponsor for the Azzurra Team, which will take the burgee of the Costa Smeralda Yacht Club to international regattas under the technical leadership of Vasco Vascotto. In 2015, the crew dressed by SLAM won both the professional 52 Super Series circuit, as well as the TP52 World Championship.
The Genoa-based brand is also the official licensee of several regattas, including the historical Maxi Yacht event, which has become the most important appointment in the sailing calendar in the Mediterranean, as well as the Swan Cup, which is now in its nineteenth edition and which will be the chance for all the owners of prestigious swan boats to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Nautor's Swan.
In fact, the company has also signed partnership agreements to be the official sponsor of the Nautor's Swan, an important Finnish yacht builder, and the International Maxi Association.
SLAM® also sponsors the 151 Miglia, one of the most beautiful offshore races in the Mediterranean that leaves from Livorno on the 2nd of June and will finish in Punta Ala.
