Marlow’s Leisure Marine Manager David Mossman comments:
The inaugural programme in 2021 proved to be an outstanding success for the Ambassadors and Marlow. We were very encouraged by the commitment to the partnership received from our ambassadors that some have been invited to remain as Marlow’s Youth Ambassadors in their class for a second year.
Marlow has a strong reputation of working with the top sailing and racing teams in the world such as the British Sailing Team and we gain a lot of hands-on knowledge from working closely with these sailors. Working with the youth sailing community is equally as important to us, to gain an understanding of how we can better engineer our products in the class associations, as well as sharing our expertise and championing the sailing athletes of the future. We are excited to welcome this year’s winners to Marlow, and look forward working with these rising stars and to follow their success.
Flo Tovey and Hatti Rogers, receive their awards from BST Dylan Fletcher, at this year’s RYA Dinghy Show.
