Vectair are delighted to announce some exciting sporting news regarding a sponsorship agreement and a Great British Yachtsman. Elliot Hanson, an aspiring junior international yachstman who Vectair sponsored for two seasons, is heading to the Olympics 2020. A few years ago, for a period of 2 seasons, the Company sponsored Elliot Hanson and our sponsorship contributed to allowing Elliot to buy sails (the most essential part of a racing dinghy!!) and the Vectair logo was emblazoned on the sails in many worldwide competition, such as Miami and Mallorca.
Elliot’s discipline is Laser Dinghy’s, the fastest Race Class in international yachting, and one that has proudly delivered British World and Olympic Champions, including Sir Ben Ainslie.
It is fantastic to report that recently, Elliot was selected by the British Yachting Association to represent Britain in the Laser Class for the forthcoming Olympics 2020, being held this summer in Japan.
Hanson’s selection in Team GB comes after he finished fifth at the Laser World Championships. He missed out on bronze by just two points.
Vectair and I’m sure the whole of Great Britain would like to wish Elliot every success and hope he brings back a Gold Medal for the country!!
