Team Tunnicliffe trio of Olympic sailors are Anna Tunnicliffe, Molly Vandemoer and Debbie Capozzi.

Maclaren is excited to announce its entry into global sailing sponsorship with the endorsement of three of the world’s top sailors. The trio, led by Olympic Gold Medalist and US Sailing's 2010 Rolex Yachtswoman of the Year Anna Tunnicliffe, had recently joined forces to create a world-class match racing team called Team Tunnicliffe. The Team will now be re-named Team Maclaren.

This sponsorship kicks-off a larger initiative for Maclaren to align with the sport of sailing globally. Maclaren has always been committed to excellence and sailing provides the company with a platform that embodies the lifestyle, attributes, and heritage of the Maclaren brand.

Team Maclaren is one of several major international programs within sailing the company has planned this year. As influential young athletes, Tunnicliffe and her team are perfect to represent the Maclaren lifestyle. They will serve as a visible reminder of exceptional women who believe it is possible to accomplish great things and also maintain a balance and quality in their active lives.

Tunnicliffe, who hopes to lead her team to a gold medal in 2012, says 'We are very excited to partner with such a great company. Maclaren embodies the same values of performance, quality, empowerment and safety that we sail by every day. We’re just thrilled to be welcomed into the Maclaren family.'

The three members of Team Maclaren are currently balancing a busy schedule training for the Olympic Games and competing in premier regattas around the world.

Maclaren is the preeminent global lifestyle brand leader for parenting products. For nearly 50 years Maclaren has stood for excellence, empowerment and innovation, and is best known for the creation of the first umbrella buggy which revolutionized baby transport. Maclaren Team Tunnicliffe website
