Date Posted:3 May 2017 

Australian Sailing is pleased to announce and welcome on board, B&G, LIROS GmbH and MedAire as national sponsors.

Australian Sailing General Manager of Commercial and Government, Steve Walker said that these sponsors will all contribute to the growth and development of sailing across the country.

“As well as supporting the Australian Sailing Team, B&G, LIROS and MediAire all offer a range of products and services that can significantly benefit all sailors,” Steve said.  “We are thrilled to have a wide range of sponsors committed to Australian Sailing and its members.

“While B&G and MedAire are new, LIROS have supported Australian Sailing for the last seven years and it is great to again have them supporting our sailors as they prepare for Tokyo 2020.”

LIROS have been the Official Rope Supplier to the Australian Sailing Team since 2010 and are thrilled to once again be supporting Australian Sailors.  LIROS is represented in Australia by Robyn, Philip and Melissa Yeomans of DeckHardware.

“Through our ambassadors and the Australian Sailing Team, we continue to support sailing at every level,” Melissa said.  “Sailing is not just a sport, it is a lifestyle and we are lucky to be involved in a sport where you can rig next to those you look up to or even sail against them.

“We look forward to the journey ahead and supporting Australian Sailing.”

B&G has been at the cutting edge of sailing innovation for over 50 years providing sailors of all levels with precision marine electronics.  B&G gives sailors the ultimate ‘full picture’ no matter what the activity on the water from dinghies to keelboats and everything in-between.

It will be these precise marine electronics that will guide and assist our high performance coaches as they prepare for major regattas locally, nationally and internationally.

MedAire provide expert medical education training courses, medical equipment offerings and the medical and logistical expertise of its 24/7 MedLink Global Response Centres.  As a new Australian Sailing sponsor, MedAire are dedicated to providing expert care, everywhere.

Australian Sailing welcomes and thanks B&G, LIROS and MedAire for their commitment to the continual development of sailing.
