We’re delighted to have renewed our long-standing partnership with performance clothing company Musto.
The British Sailing Team first joined forces with Musto in 2009, beginning a relationship that’s lasted over a decade. Musto and the British Sailing Team have continued to combine their knowledge and expertise to ensure athletes are kitted out in the highest level of performance dinghy gear including the Sunblock Dynamic and Flexlite Vapour range.
Musto’s Olympic heritage can be traced all the way back to the 1964 Olympic Games when founder Keith Musto won the silver medal in the Flying Dutchman class. Ever since, the brand has continued to deliver race-winning performance and weather protection apparel.
Ian Walker, Director of Racing at the RYA, said: “The British Sailing Team aims to be the world’s best both on and off the water. Musto’s peerless knowledge and expertise will be invaluable as the British Sailing Team seek to further their dominance in Olympic class sailing.”
Nick Houchin, Musto’s Head of Marketing, added: “We are proud to continue our relationship with the British Sailing Team. The four year partnership enables us to build upon our close relationship with the team, working directly with the sailors in the development of our high-performance dinghy sailing gear. We are engaging with the global sailing community from grassroots to Olympic level through our partnership with the international federation, World Sailing, and Musto’s support of the British Sailing Team is our commitment to inspiring current and future Olympic hopefuls on a national level.”
The British Sailing Team was instrumental in developing Musto’s new Spring Summer 2022 dinghy collection, offering feedback to Musto’s designers over a three year period, culminating in an updated Flexlite Alumin product family.
“Musto worked with us to fully understand our requirements and have produced durable, flexible clothing that provides us with a level of protection like no other,” said Anna Burnet, who won silver in the Nacra 17 class at Tokyo 2020. “The brand helps the British Sailing Team achieve those marginal gains so vital in securing a podium spot in each race.”
