As part of the partnership, Gill will be the exclusive provider of technical sailing clothing to Sunsail’s employees, skippers and customers, while Sunsail’s well-known Sunsail Racing Series will be renamed the Gill Sunsail Racing Series. Gill will also sponsor all eight rounds throughout the year in the Solent, and contribute prizes for winners.
Bryan Stewart, sales and marketing director at Gill commented, “We are very proud to be working with Sunsail and support their sailing programs with Gill Technical Gear. We have worked with them in the past, and we have always had an excellent relationship. We know our gear will keep the sailors warm, dry and comfortable in all conditions.”
Simon Boulding, Sunsail’s events director also added, “Whether our clients are racing in the Solent in the Gill Sunsail Racing Series, cruising in the Mediterranean or on a Whale Shark flotilla in the Caribbean, we are delighted to be able to deliver and recommend Gill Technical Gear to meet the demands of sailing in all conditions around the globe.”
