Technical sailing brand Gill has announced they will be working with Emirates Team New Zealand once again in 2014. Having already supplied a range of products for the first of the Extreme Sailing Series, which will take place in Singapore this week.
Grant Dalton, managing director at Emirates Team New Zealand commented, “We worked with Gill on the TP52 programme when we won the MedCup two years in a row and the Louis Vuitton Trophy Regattas in 2010. Now, as was then, we found the gear comfortable and a perfect product for what we required, it is great to be working with Gill again as we start the journey towards the next Americas Cup.”
Gill will be supplying the team with items from their race collection, designed specifically for high-performance, intense-activity sailing.
Bryan Stewart, director of Gill said, “We love working with Emirates Team New Zealand, one of the most iconic sailing teams on the planet. It gives us the opportunity for our product to be used at the very top of our sport, and to work with the team to hone and develop our gear. We are supplying some of the best possible kit for the type of sailing they are involved with. Our Race Collection performs best in a fast paced high pressured environment – exactly like the Extreme Sailing Series.”
Dean Barker added, “It is great to be working with Gill again as we start on the journey toward the 35th Americas Cup. Emirates Team New Zealand have had a great history with Gill and it is nice for this to be able to continue.”
