Musto, will partner the Etchells Australian Winter Championship in 2009.
Musto’s Australian managing director Duncan Curnow says the partnership between this prestigious event and Musto is about the company supporting a highly successful annual event which brings together some of the best one-design sailors in Australia.
‘We are pleased to be able to support an event that is well-run, high profile and highly competitive. The event is a reflection of Musto’s approach to its product range. We also strive to be leaders. In a very competitive market we offer innovative and practical solutions to on-water and off the water sailing clothing.’
The 13th Etchells Australian Winter Championship will be held from the 4 to 7 June, in Mooloolaba, Queensland. Event organiser chair Trevor Martin says the event remains the pinnacle winter event on the one-design racing calendar.
‘With the assistance of Musto we will be conducting an Australia-wide marketing campaign to remind our likely entrants, particularly those from down south, what a great place Mooloolaba is to visit in the winter.
Before the sailors head north in 2009 Musto is offering them access to new services and products.
Curnow says their latest innovation is the Musto Online Shop. ‘Select any sailing competition item from those listed on the website and place an order. The system is simple to use and the delivery for stock items fast.’
Recognising the limitations of many marine retail outlets to carry the whole range of Musto products, the online shop gives sailors the opportunity to order the competition gear they need and have it shipped to the marine outlet closest to their home address.
During the 2009 Etchells Australian Winter Championship Musto will be profiling many of their latest designs to the competitors and their supporters. The new range of casual wear will be on display with competitors given the chance to get up close to feel the quality and appreciate the style of Musto’s outstanding casual nautical range.
