MUSTO Announce Partnership with Team Alvimedica of the Volvo Ocean Race

By iSportconnect | June 18, 2014

The youngest entry in this year’s Volvo Ocean Race, cough Team Alvimedica, has announced a partnership with offshore sailing brand MUSTO.

MUSTO will provide the team with the necessary kit to complete the race, which has stopovers in 11 cities in 11 countries and covers 38,739 nautical miles.

The agreement sees MUSTO further expand their Volvo Ocean Race-related portfolio, as they are already the official supplier of sailing apparel and footwear for the next two editions of the race.

Skipper Charlie Enright commented: “We’ve been working with former race winners, Paul Cayard and Stu Bannatyne, to ensure we’re race ready in October. When it came to deciding whose kit we would be wearing, we looked for a brand that also had incomparable Race knowledge and expertise – the only real choice was MUSTO.”

MUSTO CEO, Nigel Musto added: “MUSTO has supplied kit to Volvo Ocean Race competitors for 33 years.  It’s been a pleasure to pass my experience and knowledge gained from working with many of the Race’s legends to Charlie, Mark and the rest of the team.

“Pulling together your own Volvo Ocean Race Team at under-30 is impressive stuff, we’re keenly watching their growth and are proud to be a chapter of their success story.”
