GILL PARTNER WITH THE JUNIOR OFFSHORE GROUP
Leading marine brand joins forces as Official Clothing Supplier with the innovative UK yacht club
Gill Marine, one of the leading technical apparel brands in the world, are set to partner with the Junior Offshore Group (JOG) in the UK. Gill will become JOG’s Official Clothing Supplier, so JOG can offer their members exclusive discounts as well as a bespoke JOG-branded range. Gill will also be working with them on special events, like the exciting race next year to commemorate 70 years since the launch of this unique yacht club.
Gill will also be the primary sponsor of this year’s Cowes to Cherbourg race to be held on Friday 20th September.
JOG is a yacht club with a difference - since 1950, JOG has been focused on making coastal and offshore racing accessible to small boat owners by keeping entry fees modest. The yacht club doesn’t have a clubhouse, but instead organises events at host ports for their weekend events.
Commenting on the partnership, Joel Chadwick, Gill’s Corporatewear Business Development Manager, concluded, “Gill are very proud to be supporting the Junior Offshore Group. The iconic yacht club breaks the mould in the UK and we share their values of innovation, friendly yet serious racing, a Corinthian spirit and building a supportive community. The partnership is a great opportunity for Gill to engage with our core consumers in the UK. We can’t wait to start offering exclusive discounts to JOG members, to create a unique branded collection and we’re excited about celebrating 70 years of the club with the 70th Anniversary event next year.”
Dougie Leacy, JOG Captain concluded. “The Junior Offshore Group are very proud to announce this partnership with Gill. This will benefit our members highly and build awareness of our shared values within the broader sailing community.”
