Harken announced as official supplier of the RYA British Sailing Team

Harken UK is delighted to announce it has been selected as an official supplier and sponsor of the RYA British Sailing Team.

Harken UK runs an extensive programme of support for a number of sailors across the UK. The decision to support the British Sailing Team's medal-winning campaigns on the world stage in the run up to and beyond the Rio 2016 Games will help training sailors optimise the use of hardware; as well as benefit from Harken technical expertise and advice.

Harken gear has consistently proven to be the number one choice for sailors in the Olympic and Paralympic Classes. Over the next three years the Harken team will provide a variety of support, from one to one pit stop hardware assessments to recommended kit lists and spares packs, ensuring all British Sailing Team crews are getting the most out of their equipment.

Harken has a long standing relationship with the RYA, including supporting initiatives and charities such as Onboard and Sailability. By sponsoring Olympic and Paralympic Classes talents, Harken aims to reinforce its support of British sailing and ambition, encouraging more people to take up this fantastic sport!

 "Equipment and fittings that you can rely on in the heat of competition is a vital part of any world class sailing campaign, and we're delighted to be partnered with Harken UK through until 2017,"  commented RYA Olympic Manager Stephen Park.

Andy Ash-Vie, Managing Director of Harken UK commented that, "supporting British sailing lies at the heart of what Harken UK is all about. We are excited to continue working with the RYA British Sailing Team, providing them with the latest innovative products and technical support to help them realise their goals."
