For 2012, the team are equipped with the Plunge shoe, designed in conjunction with their professional expertise. This style has been updated for the UK market by the Racer style within the new TriWater collection. The TriWater designs meet the needs of even the most experienced of sailors through its technical features including quick-drying and protective materials, footbed with drainage and shock absorption. Hotly tipped as being ‘the toughest shoes on the water’ this new TriWater range is made with high-performance and technically advanced materials to offer great functionality, durability and comfort.

Tom Burnham, Pit, Quantum Sailing Team: 'It’s been a fantastic week for the Sebago sponsored Quantum Sailing Team and a successful start for 2012 as we secure our first win of the year. The Quantum relationship with Sebago has been great over the last few years; they provide us with all our technical footwear and kit. To have them as a sponsor is really positive as they generate widespread exposure for the Quantum brand.'

The Racer shoe is available for retail in the UK at all major Sebago stores for £89.99, as well as online.
