King of the Cape Freestyle Pro-Am, June 6-8 2003, Cape Cod
Posted On:  04/04/2003

2003 Verizon Wireless King of the Cape Freestyle Pro-Am, West Dennis Beach, Cape Cod, Massachusetts,
June 6-8, 2003

2003 Verizon Wireless King of the Cape Freestyle Pro-Am will be returning for its 5th year to West Dennis Beach, Cape Cod in June 2003 with a cash purse of $15,000. This annual event showcases the best pro, amateur, and novice freestyle talent from the US and around the world, and is soon to be recognized on the PWA Tour 2003 calendar. Title Sponsor Verizon Wireless has signed on again for another year, as well as Bic Sport North America, distributors of AHD, Gaastra, Fiberspar and Red Bull.

What makes King of the Cape unique is that it caters to both the seasoned pro, as well as the average weekend warrior who dabbles in freestyle. Whether you are competing or watching, the fun factor will be set to the max the whole weekend. And in keeping the fun flowing for 2003, the event will return to its roots by using the round robin event format to help increase sailing time on the water. The double elimination ladders used last year reduced sailing time in half. This year the time on the water will be maximized for all participants.

Another important ingredient in the success of this event is ensuring sailors (and spectators) have as much fun on the water as they do off. To this effect, we have Red Bull hosting parties for all during the festival weekend, and the continued support of our title sponsor Verizon Wireless and premier sponsor Paul Mitchell Sports.

"King of the Cape has been an integral part of our marketing campaign in New England and its demographic is perfect fit for our image as a sports drink company." -- Kim Burke, Red Bull New England

"The event was such a success last year for us that we wanted to continue to support this amazing event." -- Lynn Mancini, Marketing Director of Verizon Wireless
