Musto, manufacturers of technical sailing clothing, has been appointed official performance clothing partner to Skandia Team GBR for the next four years.

From April 2009 to March 2013, Musto will be designing and developing technical sailing clothing on a patriotic theme to meet the needs of members of the British Sailing Team in the Olympic and Paralympic Classes, as well as merchandising a range for Skandia Team GBR supporters.

Musto will be supplying the entire Skandia Team GBR squad, totalling some 70 sailors, with a selection of technical and shore-side clothing and equipment, while also kitting out Skandia Team GBR's World Class support team.

Commenting on the appointment, Vice President Nigel Musto said: “We are very proud to be supporting Skandia Team GBR over the next four years. The recent success of British sailors on the international stage, coupled with the fact the Olympic sailing regatta will be held in home waters in 2012, make this a truly golden age for British Olympic and Paralympic Classes sailing and an age in which we are delighted to be involved.”

Stephen Park, The Royal Yachting Association (RYA) Olympic Manager added: “We are delighted to have Musto onboard as our official kit suppliers for the next four years. To ensure we are as well-equipped as possible to maintain our position as the world's most successful Olympic Classes sailing nation we need to give our sailors the best kit we can and we are confident that Musto will prove to be a World Class partner for Skandia Team GBR.”

News of the partnership was welcomed warmly by Keith Musto, company founder, who was selected as a squad member for three Olympic Games and brought home a silver medal from Tokyo in 1964, having competed in the Flying Dutchman class.
