Sail Canada renews partnership with Allen Brothers

Kingston, January 23, 2024 – Sail Canada announced today the extension of its partnership with Performance hardware manufacturer Allen Brothers until at least 2025.

Since 2022, Allen Brothers is the Hardware partner of the Canadian Sailing Team and Development Squad as they proudly support Sail Canada’s athletes.

Located in Essex in the United Kingdom, Allen Brothers ensures Sail Canada athletes and coaches have access to high performance and world class boat hardware from Allen Brothers, helping Sail Canada’s athletes to optimize their performance during training and competition.

“Supporting world-class athletes is something we really take pride in, and we are especially pleased to continue our support with the Canadian Sailing Team”, said Liz Adams, Managing Director of Allen Brothers. “We finished the year with several Canadian Sailing Team members completing full Allen fit outs on their new boats, showing that the partnership is beneficial to both parties. We’re really looking forward to building on this over the next few years and can’t wait to help the athletes achieve big things.”

“Sail Canada is glad to see the ongoing partnership with Allen Brothers”, said Sail Canada High Performance Director, Mike Milner. “This partnership allows our performance athletes to have the best equipment possible and spend less time on the shore fixing their boat, and more time on the water to train, develop and perform.”

Allen Brothers specialises in the manufacturing of performance sailing hardware, all of which is designed, developed, and assembled in their factory in Essex, in the United Kington. The company supports many of the worlds best sailors and works directly with those sailors to develop and produce leading marine products which are used across a vast variety of dinghies and keelboats.
