Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes WeekBiografia Galleria Notiziario
Gill is extremely proud to be Technical Clothing Sponsor to Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week, an internationally iconic event and one of the world’s best known sailing regattas.
With a background steeped in performance sail racing, we believe we have the perfect pedigree to develop a relationship with an event as synonymous with sailing as Cowes Week.
As part of its investment, Gill will be developing a merchandise range with Cowes Week organisers, running a series of competitions to win exclusive prizes, introducing a voucher scheme for daily winners at Cowes Week, as well as providing the regatta team with clothing.
Commenting on the announcement, Michelle Warner, Sales and Marketing Director for Cowes Week Limited said, "We are really excited about working in partnership with Gill and increasing the value we are able to offer participants racing at Cowes Week. Gill is hugely respected by the sailing fraternity and the partnership represents some fantastic opportunities for us both."

Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week 2012
Data di spedizione: 30/08/2012
Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week 2012 provided some great racing conditions with sunshine and good breeze for the majority of the regatta. The official merchandise range proved a huge success, and it was great to see so many crews sporting both the Race Collection and new Keelboat gear on and off the water. The Cowes Yacht Haven was a busy hub of activity at the end of racing when the crews all converged for post-sailing drinks, a spot of shopping or to listen to the musical offerings on the Gill Stage.
Newly appointed members of Gill Race Team, Cobra, a Summit 40, owned by Mike and Seb Blair and helmed by Freddie Hall competed in IRC Class 1. This is the first season on the new boat for the Cobra crew who have been sailing together since 2001. Having recently competed in the Brewin Dolphin Commodore’s Cup the crew really pulled together for the weeks’ racing and came 8th in a class of 21 boats.
Sarah Allan was representing GRT in the SB20 Class, despite only competing in the first half and missing three days’ sailing the crew still managed to gain a 12th place overall out of a class of 27 boats.
We were also proud to be associated with the Sisterhood in their 2012 ‘mission’ which was to compete at Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week. All in the name of charity a team of novices pulled together to form an all-female crew on a J/122 skippered by Susan Glenny (the only pro on the boat). Their high profile meant much media attention with articles in the Evening Standard and the Telegraph sporting the Crosswind Jacket. The girls finished the week in 21st position, in a class of 35. Not bad for a bunch of amateurs!
Ladies Day on Thursday 16 August saw Annie O'Sullivan of Girls For Sail win the coveted Ladies Day Trophy for her efforts over the last 13 years in getting more women into the sport of sailing. Along with her trophy she was presented with a Gill Hooded Pro Softshell Jacket.
One of the highlights of the Week was the close competition between the under 25 year-olds racing for the newly introduced Aberdeen Asset Management Under 25's Trophy. The trophy was won by William Goldsmith on the J/80 Exess following a series of second places in her class throughout the Week and a win on Thursday. William (19) from Maldon, Essex is a member of the British Keelboat Academy, which Gill is the official clothing supplier. Commenting on the team's win and the week's racing, William said: "It has been a fantastic week and to win this trophy is unbelievable. It makes all our hard work to get here, really worthwhile."
A fantastic week was rounded up with a spectacular firework display on Friday night. We look forward to next year!
Cowes Week 2010 Review
Data di spedizione: 18/08/2010
Cowes Week 2010 lived up to all expectations and was something of a triumph for all concerned. I think it’s safe to say that we made an impression, the now iconic fluorescent Gill logo seemed to be taking over the world, or at least Cowes! Check out some great photo’s in our <a href="http://www.gillmarine.com/gb/gallery"> Cowes Week gallery </a> to see what I mean.
With changeable weather conditions and a total of 896 entries, activities on the water were always interesting. When the 8000 or so sailors came ashore they were confronted with only one sensible option, a beer in front of the Gill Stage. The Gill Stage in The Yacht Haven was where it was at, it played host to an array of great live acts late into the night, including the late great Michael Jackson!
Throughout the week the Gill retail tent was a hive of activity, last minute glove purchases to replace the ones left at home or floating in the Solent proved to be a popular purchase. The official Cowes Week range was also flying off the shelves, mainly in the form of the stylish ‘Everyone is Equal’ polo shirt. For those of you who still crave some official Cowes Week gear, fear not, you can still <a href="http://www.gillmarine.com/gb/cowes-week">buy it online</a>
The Emirates Team New Zealand competition that we ran throughout the week created a real stir, a truly ‘money can’t buy experience’. The lucky winner has now been chosen; Mr John Howard is the man everybody should be jealous of. More news on this to follow……….
The officials, all decked out in Gill clothing ran the event to perfection, ensuring a good time was had by all. A big thanks goes out to all of them.
Roll on Cowes Week 2011………….
