Gill has announced a clothing partnership deal with Europe sailor Laura Baldwin who'll represent GBR at this summer's Olympic Games
Gill, the specialist performance clothing company, has announced a clothing partnership deal with Europe sailor Laura Baldwin (24). Baldwin, from Fleet in Hampshire, was selected in January to represent the British Olympic Team in Athens sailing in the women’s singlehanded Europe class.
Baldwin’s only been on the racing scene for a short time, arriving from the back of the fleet to become the UK Ranked Number 1 in only four years of competitive Europe sailing.
The RYA nominated her after she qualified for GBR’s Olympic slot at the ISAF World Championship and on merit of her 9th place in the European Championship.
Gill is delighted to be supporting Laura’s bid to bring home a medal. Of their newly signed partnership, Nick Gill says: “Laura epitomises so much of what we stand for as a company. We always aim for long-term partnerships as we work on development and testing programmes with all our sponsored sailors. Laura has worked incredibly hard, put any setbacks behind her and achieved a place in Team GB for Athens. Her attitude, spirit and enthusiasm
