The Australian Sailing Team will sport Maui Jim sunglasses both on and off the water as they compete in regattas around the world, following a two-year sponsorship deal that sees the brand as the team’s ‘official sunglass partner’.
Richard Hoare, Marketing Manager at Maui Jim Australia said his company is “extremely pleased to be the official sunglass partner for the Australian Sailing Team.
“Our patented colour infused PolarizedPlus2 lens is an optically correct, distortion-free lens providing greater contrast and clarity, which will assist the athletes in being able to read the wind and cut harmful UVA, UVB and UVC rays,” said Mr. Hoare.
The team is currently preparing for the 2012 London Olympic Games. In December it will compete in the Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships, the largest regatta ever held in Australia.
