Swedish apparel manufacturer Sail Racing has been appointed as official clothing partner to the ISAF World Match Racing Tour (WMRT). Sail Racing has signed a 3 year agreement with the WMRT and will provide branded team clothing onwards for the Tour from Stena Match Cup Sweden.

Newly appointed WMRT Chief Executive, Jim O'Toole, commented on the deal which will also see the new official apparel range made available to the general public via the Sail Racing online store, “This is a key new relationship for the Tour. Sail Racing's brand concept fits perfectly with the plans we have for the ongoing development of the Tour brand. We share core values such as creativity and innovation and look forward to building our clothing business to mutual benefit”

Sail Racing has worked with some of the most successful sailing events in the world such as; the Volvo Ocean Race and Nokia Oops Cup. The specialist sports clothing brand has also been associated with the Swedish America's Cup Victory Challenge Team, the Audi/Q8 Team racing a TP52 in the Audi Med Cup as well as Red Bull Extreme Sailing.

Henric Wikestam, Managing Director at Sail Racing is pleased to have formed a partnership with the world's leading professional racing series and noted the significance of this latest development for the company, “Partnering with such a successful sports brand is a very positive step for Sail Racing, we have watched the Tour's recent growth under the new leadership team with keen interest and are ready to be part of the ambitious global expansion plans. We are very excited to provide the Tour team with a clothing range which we are convinced will appeal to all members of the WMRT community including officials, teams, media and fans”.

Torvar Mirsky (AUS) Mirsky Racing Team, one of only 9 selected international 2010 WMRT Tour card holders, has also been signed up to wear the brand and will be endorsing the 'Sail Racing 50 KTS Race Edition' this season. Currently ranked 6th on the official ISAF World Match Racing Tour standings after finishing 2nd place overall at last year's Tour, Mirsky is delighted with the partnership, “it's great to be associated with a strong brand like Sail Racing, they have realized the future direction of sailing and are always one step ahead of the competition in terms of design, fashion and quality. It is the same direction in which our team is heading”.

Sail Racing also selected the esteemed Swedish racer, Magnus Holmberg (SWE) Victory Challenge, to help develop their technical lines since the inception of the company. Holmberg, who has been ranked No.1 in the World Match Race Tour standings and was crowned ISAF Match Racing World Champion from 2000-2001, is a key member of the Sail Racing clothing test team. The triple Olympian also has two America's Cup campaigns under his belt and has been dedicated to match racing since 1991, this year he is again taking part in a number of the 2010 Tour Stages. This Tour veteran has initiated Sail Racing's inclusion in a number of high profile sailing projects and is the important link between the World Match Racing Tour and the leading sports clothing line.
