The American Youth Sailing Force (The Force) is happy to announce that Zhik is now our official clothing sponsor.
Zhik’s Pat Langley is very enthusiastic, 'The team has a great amount of energy and have proven to be winners not only on the water but also on land. They have been extremely professional in how they have handled themselves as they prepare for the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup and Zhik is proud to support their challenge.'
Team Manager Ian Andrewes explains, 'We are really excited to have a company like Zhik providing us such high-performance clothing for the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup. This is just another example of the kind of support we appreciate so much. Without it, we couldn’t make this happen.'
