Gill, the technical sailing clothing brand, is pleased to announce its partnership with the Laser SB Class, one of the leading one-design and keelboat fleet racing classes in the world.
Gill will be supporting the key UK events during 2010 and 2011 including the extremely competitive Solent Series, the Torquay open and of course the National Championships to be held in Brighton in September. In addition, the UK association will host the 2011 World Championships.
Commenting on the new partnership, Katie Ashworth, Secretary to the UK SB3 Class commented, “We are thrilled with the package that Gill have offered the class over this two year period. The new “Race Range” that Gill launched at the London Boat Show in January is perfect for sailors in the SB3 fleet.
Bryan Stewart, Sales & Marketing Manager at Gill added: “Gill are delighted to be associated with the premier racing class in the UK, and look forward to building a great relationship with the fleet. We are proud to have sponsored two leading boats in the fleet, the current world champion Craig Burlton and 2008 world champion Geoff Carveth, and are delighted to extend our relationship to the entire association.
Gill will be providing a spread of prizes over these key events, as well as a Technical Shirt in support of the Class Associations activities, uniquely designed for the fleet, in addition to boat branding and on-site presence at these key events.
