United Kingdom - the new target for Sail Racing

Press release   •   Apr 04, 2019 15:47 CEST

Sail Racing announces UK as their new target market and are launching two new shops at UK destinations. The retail field is expanding with a new Club House in Cowes, England. The store will open this Easter and will be open all year round. Sail Racing will also open a Shop in Shop, at a key location in central London, Ocean Leisure. In both these stores you will be able to find the most technical range of sailing clothing and also more casual gear.

“We have chosen the UK as our focus during 2019. We are already working with Selfridges and a few other online retailers in England and see a huge potential in the market.” Says Linn Fogde, Sales Manager at Sail Racing International. “We believe Cowes is a great location for us as it is one of the biggest sailing communities in the world, and as an Official Clothing Partner to SailGP we are happy that they are hosting their 4th event in Cowes this year.”

"I am very excited about Sail Racing coming to Cowes and to open the new Sail Racing Club House on High Street this Easter. With the Sail Racing technical clothing, I believe we are filling a gap in the racing market for both amateurs and professionals." Says Annika Tomlinson, Manager for Sail Racing Club House Cowes. 

This is a key step for Sail Racing's future expansion in the UK market.
