Sailing clothing brand, SLAM will partner with Yachting New Zealand, and provide the New Zealand Sailing Team with gear through until after the next Olympic games. SLAM has recently done a similar deal with ANZAC neighbours Australia.
SLAM will become Yachting New Zealand’s Official Clothing Supplier in a deal which extends through until the 2012 Olympic Games. New Zealand’s elite sailors, campaigning towards the Olympic Sailing Regatta in Weymouth, England, will wear SLAM Advanced Technology Sportswear both on and off the water.
Meeting over the weekend in Auckland were Yachting New Zealand’s Chief Executive, Des Brennan and Olympic Programme Manager, Jez Fanstone together with SLAM’s Chief Executive, Mr Andrea Laura of Italy.
Des Brennan says:
‘The opportunities for Yachting New Zealand and SLAM are both domestic and international. The New Zealand Sailing Team will wear customised sportswear reflecting the highest elements of technology and fashion. Yachting New Zealand is delighted to be partnering with SLAM and sees a strong and mutually beneficial commercial future together.’
It is the vision of SLAM, that this ultimate sailing range will become available to fans of the New Zealand Olympic Sailing Team.
