RORC Chief Executive, Eddie Warden Owen said:
“We are delighted to have the backing of the world’s best producer of sailing clothing. Henri Lloyd’s no compromise approach to the production of foul weather gear is perfectly aligned to the requirements of our members who are all offshore sailors. The relationship will also benefit the large number of volunteers that support the RORC’s racing programme.”
Henri Lloyd’s Joint CEO Paul Strzelecki added:
“We are very excited and proud to have the Henri Lloyd brand associated with one of the world’s foremost clubs. The RORC reflects some of the same heritage qualities as Henri Lloyd and with its large membership of experienced offshore racers and calendar of events, is a great club to be associated with. We are especially excited to be the merchandise provider for the Brewin Dolphin Commodores’ Cup and the Rolex Fastnet Race in 2013 and look forward to a long relationship with RORC, their members and events.
Other Henri Lloyd sponsorship deals include TV presenter Shirley Robertson and sailing legend Sir Robin Knox-Johnston.
