For 2011, Gill is delighted join Volvo in a joint sponsorship deal to the International Optimist Class Association (IOCA-UK).
As the Official Clothing Sponsor, Gill feel it is extremely important to support these young sailors from the early stages of their sailing careers. As a pioneer of the dinghy clothing market, the Gill Race Team already supports several Optimist sailors, including Sarah Norbury and Scott Wallis, so the decision to sponsor the Optimist Class was a natural choice.
Marshall King, Chairman of IOCA (UK) added: “The Optimist Class is delighted to welcome Gill as our joint title sponsor with Volvo for the next three years. Gill is as passionate as our members about dinghy sailing and the technical clothing that sailors wear whilst getting wet. Many of our members sail all year round and appreciate high quality comfortable technical clothing of the type that Gill provides. Gill value the opinion of their consumers and strive to meet their needs and we are sure that our young sailors will do all they can to help develop the clothing of the future.”
