Zhik partners with Youth America’s Cup Team Objective Australia    
Thu, 20 Dec 2012

Zhik has made stronger its commitment to youth sailing in Australia with the announcement of their partnership with Objective Australia who will challenge for the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup (RBYAC) in 2013.

The partnership between Zhik and Objective Australia ensures that the on water team will have access to the latest technical racing gear that is presently being used by the best senior America’s Cup teams. In addition, Zhik will supply Objective Australia with on shore team wear.

Pat Langley from Zhik said 'Zhik has been a long-time supporter of the Objective Future Champions program and has enjoyed following the development of sailors such as Jason Waterhouse, Lisa Darmanin, Josh McKnight and Jim Colley, who have come through the program. To partner with Objective Australia for the Red Bull Youth Americas Cup challenge was a natural step for Zhik to take.

We are thrilled to come on board as a performance partner for Objective Australia RBYAC team and continue our support for Australian youth sailing with this exciting new challenge.


Zhik presently design and develop custom race gear for the majority of the teams challenging for the 2013 edition of the America’s Cup. It is pleasing that we are able to use the knowledge and experience obtained from years of working with international teams to help the Australian quest to win the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup.'

Objective Australia Sailing Director and Coach, Traks Gordon commented that 'To be successful at the Youth America’s Cup, we know that our team must have the world’s most talented sailors whilst using the best technology. We have selected our sailors carefully to ensure we have the right team. When it came to on water sailing gear, Zhik was the only choice for us.'

At the conclusion of the 2013 America’s Cup final, much of the design and fabric technology developed whilst working with America’s Cup teams will filter down into the general Zhik sailing range to benefit all sailors.
