Musto joins British Sailing as official supplier

British Sailing has announced that Musto has signed a deal to once again become the official supplier of apparel, luggage, accessories and footwear to the Olympic team.

The new agreement will see the London-based equipment manufacturer support the British sailing team's efforts through to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, including at the Games themselves.

Musto will also team up with the British Youth Sailing Team, launching the ‘Musto Junior Riders’ initiative in order to support young sailors looking to get into the sport at the top level.

"It is extremely exciting to partner with the most successful sailing team in Olympic history, and provide them with the most innovative kit solutions from Musto," said Petra Carran, head of marketing for Musto. "Combining Musto's industry leading technology with the British Sailing Team's experience on the water will, we hope, lead to a successful challenge for gold."

Britain finished top of the medal table for sailing at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, taking home two golds and one silver.
