Yesterday Sunsail Racing officially announced they are coming onboard as one of my sponsors for the mini transat.
I am delighted.
When I first made my way down to the Solent at the tender age of 18, with a dream of working on boats; like so many others my first job was with Sunsail. Though then they had 15 boats ranging between 32 and 35 feet and no GPS’s! (Am I showing my age?)
Well, we have both moved on, me to a 21ft crazy little boat I am going to race across the Atlantic and Sunsail to a brand new fleet of First 40 yachts, one of which I will be racing at Cowes next week.
Many thanks to them for their support, it is great to feel that they are behind what I am doing and that as a company Sunsail supports sailing as a sport as well as a business.
