Sponsorship agreement in place for the next four years assisting with sailor development and opportunity at the CYCA through YSA program.

Toga Development and Construction has joined the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia’s Youth Sailing Academy as a sponsor of one of the Elliott 7.0m training vessels until 2019.

A successful developer of quality residential apartments, Toga is also a leading hotel operator across Australia, New Zealand and Europe.

Toga has an excellent track record of successfully delivering multiuse residential projects that attract new residents and investors to key areas around Sydney, capatilising on existing amenities as well as encouraging retailers and restaurateurs to invest in the area.

Toga General Manager, Carl Duggan said that this sponsorship arrangement was orchestrated by Toga Chairman, Ervin Vidor AM who has been a CYCA Member for 40 years.

“The support for this program was initiated by our Chairman who is an avid sailor,” Duggan said. “Toga has sponsored the Youth Sailing Academy previously for ten years and we are excited to continue that support. Toga recognises the YSA as a great coaching ground for nurturing Australia’s developing sailing talent.

“In addition to the YSA , Toga are also sponsoring Optimus sailing dinghies at Georges River Sailing Club to encourage children to have a chance to start  sailing at an entry level class.”

Commodore John Cameron thanked Toga Group for their support of youth sailing. “The Cruising Yacht Club of Australia prides itself on providing one of the leading youth sailing academies in Australia. Elliott boat sponsorship is vital to the ongoing maintenance of the training fleet and provides support for the many programs and regattas that the CYCA’s Youth Sailing Academy conducts.”

“Alumni from the YSA have gone on to compete in Olympic class events, the America’s Cup and other national squads,” the Commodore added. “We are delighted to have Toga on board supporting the YSA in developing sailors and providing a quality program that delivers world-class events.”
