Typhoon International gives Simon Hiscocks’ 2004 Olympic 49er Campaign a flying start and continues to support Ian Barker as he builds on his Olympic success

Typhoon International, UK manufacturer of drysuits, wetsuits and dinghy sailing accessories has announced a four-year sponsorship deal with Simon Hiscocks and Ian Barker, Olympic Silver medallists in the 49er class. In recognition of the support given by both Ian and Simon to Typhoon International at the 2000 Olympic games and the lead up, a cheque and a selection of on-shore gear was presented to Simon at Sailboat 2001 at Alexandra Palace.

Typhoon International will also be providing both Simon and Ian with great gear sponsorship over the next 4 years. They hope that this will help Simon to go ‘one better’ in the 49er at the 2004 Olympic Games and allow Ian to be just as successful with his new projects.
