Harken announce sponsorship for Olympic medallist Luke Patience & Elliot Willis


Harken are delighted to announce Luke Patience and Elliot Willis have signed on as Harken sponsored sailors in the run up to the 2016 Olympic Games!

Luke Patience, a London 2012 silver-medallist, teamed up with Elliot Willis, a twice over World Champion in a campaign to become the first 470 Class British Olympic Gold medallists in Rio 2016. 

"We are competing at a level where you have to be at the top of your game, from fitness, to sailing tactics, to hardware and gear. The Harken guys have a been a great support and we trust their kit to keep us in peak performance, giving us the best shot at an Olympic Gold medal for Rio 2016."

We have worked very closely with the RYA and British Sailing Team for many years and will work with the guys to ensure their hardware is in peak condition for Olympic performance. Best of luck guys, we'll be following you all the way!"
