Rosebud Racing signs on new sponsor

Dockwise Yacht Transport (DYT), the world's leading yacht logistics company with its own fleet of semi-submersible ships, has announced that Rosebud Racing has joined forces with the company to become Rosebud Racing/Team DYT.

The Farr-designed Rosebud was launched in June 2007 as the world's first STP65, a "box-rule" collaboration between the Storm Trysail Club and the TransPacific Yacht Club. Owned by Roger Sturgeon of Ft, Lauderdale, Fla., it has set the racing world on fire with its recent performances, including winning the overall IRC handicap title in the famed Rolex Sydney Hobart Race at the end of 2007. In that race, Sturgeon also became the first American in 30 years to take overall regatta honors, joining only two other Americans who can make the same claim: Jim Kilroy (Kialoa III in 1977) and Ted Turner (American Eagle in 1972). -http://www.yacht-transport.com/
