Peters & May has supported the Royal Yachting Association and the British Sailing Team for over 15 years, and both parties are delighted that an ongoing agreement has been signed which sees the two world class organisations partnered until at least 2017.
The British Sailing Team is now well into its new four-year competitive cycle, leading towards the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Rio in 2016. This is true not only for the sailors, but also for the dedicated support staff who work tirelessly to ensure the sailors are able to compete in a complicated and extensive programme of events over the next four years. Having an ongoing relationship with a proven partner such as Peters & May ensures continuity of service and peace of mind for the entire team.
RYA Olympic Manager Stephen Park comments: ‘Peters & May has been the shipping partner of the British Sailing Team dating back over 15 years, and during this time has expertly handled logistics of the team to events all over the world. The service that we have received allows the sailors to trust on the timely, safe and stress-free arrival of their equipment to wherever in the world they are competing. We look forward to enjoying another four years with Peters & May as we look ahead to key events in Santander, Miami, Oman and Rio that will all require the services of one of the world’s premier marine logistics companies.’
Peters & May takes great pride in being an Official Supplier to the most successful Olympic sailing nation in the world. The company’s specialist Racing Department, headed by Craig Stanbury, is prepared for the challenges of another four-year cycle, and has already been working on securing cost effective transport solutions to the many venues the team will visit in the coming years.
He explains: “The British Sailing Team will sail in venues both familiar and new to them in their quest for success over the next four years, but they can rest assured that through our global network, Peters & May have the ‘local’ knowledge to ensure the smooth transport of their equipment wherever their event.”
The team at Peters & May would like to take this opportunity to wish the British Sailing Team the very best of luck; we look forward to supporting your medal-winning ambitions.
