British Sailing Team makes posters to mark one year to go

To mark the one-year countdown to the postponed Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, the British Sailing Team has released a collection of posters celebrating its selected sailors.

The set of ten posters feature all 15 athletes picked to represent Team GB at Tokyo 2020, including defending gold medallists Giles Scott and Hannah Mills.

Each image blends action photos of the sailors with quintessential Japanese illustrations that take inspiration from the famous illustration The Great Wave off Kanagawa by Katsushika Hokusai.

The posters were produced by design studio KYAK using imagery shot by esteemed sailing photographer, Mark Lloyd.

To mark the poster launch, the British Sailing Team is holding a competition for fans to win signed posters of their favourite sailors, plus a set of all ten for their sailing club, school or organisation of choice.

To enter, head to the British Sailing Team’s Facebook or Instagram.

“We wanted to create something iconic to celebrate the sailors who will fly the flag for Team GB at Tokyo 2020,” says Will Carson, communications manager for the British Sailing Team.

The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will take place from 23 July to 8 August 2021, with the sailing competition held in Enoshima from 25 July to 4 August.
