Spain SailGP becomes sixth team to partner with Zhik

Zhik has announced a new partnership with the Spain SailGP Team. The Australian clothing company is now the Official Technical Clothing Supplier for Season 4, bringing the total number of its partnerships with teams to six. This means over half the SailGP fleet have now chosen Zhik’s performance apparel.

The latest partnership comes on the back of Zhik’s support of 49er Olympic sailors Diego Botin and Florian Trittel, who are also part of the Spanish crew.

“It is exciting to be able to expand our partnerships with some of the world’s best sailors and teams,” says Mat Belcher, Zhik CEO and triple Olympic medallist. “As a company that is always looking to propel the sailing and water sports industry forward, we see this as a very strong partnership to ensure we can continue to evolve and innovate. The Spanish market is a key one for us and we are very excited to be partnering with this team to expand our presence in such a strong sailing nation.”

Earlier this year, Dismarina, Spain’s leading distributor of marine equipment, was appointed to represent Zhik and work with it to extend its customer base in the region. Zhik believes the international impact and potential for growth and expansion of a high-performance league like SailGP is a great opportunity for it to increase its reach in the Spanish region.

“We are really excited to be able to partner with Zhik for SailGP Season 4,” says Diego Botin, Spain SailGP team’s driver. “We have been working with and wearing Zhik on the 49er for a while now, so to be able to extend this to the whole of the Spain SailGP Team is great. We’ve worked closely with Zhik in the development of some new products and we really appreciate them supporting us and other top level athletes.”
