Marinepool is “Official Clothing Supplier of the Tour de France à la Voile”

While Marinepool is a new partner to the Tour de France á la Voile, the brand has a strong foot hold in the M34 class already with several high profile partnerships and a great Tour de France á la Voile track record as a supplier of teams. Marinepool has been the clothing brand of choice of Courrier Dunkerque with skipper Daniel Souben, winner of The Tour in 2008 and 2009 and runner up in the 2010 and 2011 editions.

Technical clothing undoubtedly plays a key role in achieving performance by regulating the body climate and preserving the energy of a sailor for the moments when it counts. On the other hand, the professional athletes guarantee the products are put through their gears and tested to the limits in the most demanding environment, offshore racing.

Marinepool offers a wide range of sailing clothing, outdoor sportswear, maritime fashion and high performance life jackets and is renowned for excellent design and top of the range quality. The brand has a presence in 42 countries around the globe.

“We are pleased to be a part of this ambitious project. There is no doubt that the change of organizer will put new life into this major sailing event in France”, explains Oli Deligans, Sales Director France. “The growth of Marinepool is based on partnership strategies with a long time perspective, like the Régates Royales de Cannes or the French Sailing Federation which we have supported for several years now, to name just a few. The brand will be visible not only on the water, but also ashore as we will dress the organisers of the Tour de France á la Voile. 

We also want to take up the challenge to promote this beautiful race far beyond the French borders by working hand in hand with this new team and our international network.”
