Crewsaver is to sponsor sailor Alan Roberts as he prepares to take part in the Solitaire du Figaro
Crewsaver is to sponsor professional sailor Alan Roberts as he takes part in the Soltaire du Figaro yacht race.
As part of the two-year sponsorship deal, Alan will be provided with essential safety equipment and services, including lifejackets from Crewsaver’s Fusion 3D range – the ErgoFit 290N Extreme and Crewfit 180N Pro.
“Safety is a crucial part of Alan’s sailing campaign – we not only aim to support Alan through the supply of safety equipment but also through the essential training needed to use the equipment effectively, helping to ensure he is prepared for the tough conditions he will face in both racing and training environments,” explained Hannah Burywood, Crewsaver marketing manager.
Alan will also be kitted out with search and recovery essentials including emergency beacons, pyrotechnics and man-overboard equipment such as a rescue sling and horseshoe buoy.
In addition, he will undertake in-depth #LifejacketSafe training covering lifejacket care and maintenance, rearming and repacking.
Alan has previously taken part in the Solitaire du Figaro and has been highest British finisher for three years running.
