August 12, 2016
Welcome to the 13th Annual Nantucket Race Week!
Here are just a few of the great opportunities offered by our sponsors.
BMW will be offering test drive opportunities at The White Elephant, Nantucket Yacht Club and Great Harbor Yacht Club throughout the week. Take this unique opportunity to get behind the wheel of the electrifying BMW i8 hybrid, 6 Series Convertible, and the all-new 7 Series.
All test drive registrants will receive a $1,000 purchase incentive for use at their local, participating Eastern Region BMW Center. Don’t have time for a Test Drive? Look for the BMW Virtual Reality Experience which will be popping up throughout the week. Prefer to scoot around Nantucket on two wheels? Take a test ride on one of their Limited Edition BMW Lifestyle e-Bikes that will be available at the daily test drive locations! Yes, it’s the same e-Bike you can opt for on your winning Raffle Ticket! Check the Nantucket Race Week Facebook page for updates.
Sealegs will be on island with two amphibious boats throughout Race Week. They will be helping us with race management support and will also be available for demos. To schedule a demo, please call Josh Trout at 401-935-7999 or come visit Sealegs near the Children’s Beach ramp.
Hood Sails service technicians will be on island for emergency sail repair from Thursday through Sunday. If you need service, please contact Dave MacMillan at 401-524-1645 or Joe Cooper at 401-965-6006.
