The International Sailing Federation has announced that Atlantis WeatherGear has been selected as the ISAF Race Officials Clothing Supplier. The partnership will see Atlantis supplying ISAF’s race official team with a range of clothing and accessories for the next four years.

Along with a kit including polo shirts, baseball cap, watership hat and dry bags, ISAF’s Race Officials will be offered a selection of branded items from the Atlantis range. Designed by sailors for sailors, these will include the innovative Aegis Jackets and hybrid bibs from Atlantis’ coastal sailing collection, Grand Prix Softshell jackets and vests, and the ultra lightweight Microburst jacket and pants.

The on-water gear together with tech shirts and items from Atlantis’ 'Deck-to-Dock' collection will offer ISAF’s race officials a combination of performance and style to keep them dry and comfortable whilst they are out on the water and looking smart and professional when they are ashore.

ISAF has over 700 volunteer race officials based around the world performing the roles of international judges, race officers, measurers and umpires at sailing events worldwide. Providing them with clothing is no simple task, so ISAF will be drawing on Atlantis’ experience and expertise to manage an on-line ordering system and delivery as well as offering high quality products that are proven to be fit for purpose.

'We’re thrilled that ISAF has selected Atlantis as their clothing partner', commented Atlantis’ head of marketing Bill Lynn. 'This relationship will help us gain visibility for our brand at the world’s premiere sailing events while putting ISAF’s influential race officials in gear that they will love.'

Atlantis WeatherGear was founded in Boston in the early 1970s by outdoor enthusiasts, and was was born out of a desire to introduce breathable fabrics and styles found in skiing apparel to the sailing market. The Atlantis team combines decades of international sailing experience with research and development relationships with some of the best sailors on the planet to create a product line that is designed to satisfy the needs to people who spend time on and around the Atlantis WeartherGear ISAF website
