The team at Hudson Wight is really looking forward to working with everyone at Fairview Sailing and Dream Charter Limited and to activating our partnership this year. We view this as a really exciting opportunity that will help both Hudson Wight and Fairview Sailing grow their business, gaining access to a range of creative sales and marketing opportunities to cross promote the individual brands also using some unique spin-off opportunities.”

Hudson Wight is continuing to garner plaudits from within the industry and from its retail customers for maintaining its focus on providing the boating fraternity with one of the best sets of foul weather gear on the market today, importantly using its own 3-layer OceanVent fabric, and for a really affordable price.

The company is also Title Sponsor of Lizzy Foreman, the 24-year old British solo sailor who will undertake the longest and most gruelling solo race of her life, the Mini Transat, starting on 19th September 2015. The brand has been her title sponsor since the start of her Mini training a year ago and is with her all the way to the finish line in Guadeloupe.
