Equipe Nürnberger Versicherung will have a new sponsor next season, Skyter Shipping. The international yacht company will take over sponsorship of the women's team as of January 1, the team announced Tuesday at a press conference in Nürnberg, Germany.

Nürnberger Versicherung, a German insurance company, has sponsored the women's team for ten years. This year's team features time trial World Champion Amber Neben of the USA, former World Champion Regina Schleicher and German Champion Trixi Worrack. The team has 14 victories this year and is currently third in the International Cycling Union's team rankings.

Skyter is a Luxembourg-based company that purchases, sells and charters yachts of 30 metres in length and up. It started time-sharing yachts for a specified number of weeks per year. Skyter GmbH is the firm's German branch, based in Fürth, near Nürnberg.

The company also sponsors car racing, both the European Ferrari Challenge race series and the ADAC GT Masters race series in Germany.
