Functional menswear brand Fisher + Baker has announced its official sponsorship of the 4th-annual Wayzata Match Cup on Lake Minnetonka in Wayzata, MN, taking place June 20-23. 2019.
Fisher + Baker will be outfitting competitors in its legacy Greenwich Anorak, a nautical-inspired piece. The Ventile fabrication of the Greenwich Anorak was originally developed to protect Royal Air Force pilots from the elements. The brand will also be hosting a pop-up shop at the event.
Fisher + Baker president and CEO, Mike Arbeiter, said, “We are excited to partner with Wayzata Match Cup for a remarkable weekend of sailing in our Twin Cities community.”
The Wayzata Match Cup is the final stop of the M32 World International Race Series’ North American winter series, before the elite team of America’s Cup sailors head to Europe for the M32 World Summer Racing Series. Wayzata Match Cup, a pro-am event, will showcase the top America’s Cup teams competing in towering M32 catamarans on Lake Minnetonka. The race series, part of Lake Minnetonka Summer Splash, runs parallel to the Wayzata Art Experience & Bash for the Boardwalk, and attracts over 195k visitors to downtown Wayzata.
