Gordon Maguire to join Doyle Sails Lake Macquarie loft

by Doyle Sails Int 3 Dec 2018 03:03 PST 4 December 2018

Doyle Sails has announced that legendary professional sailor Gordon Maguire will join Chris Nicolson and the team at the Doyle Sails Lake Macquarie loft.

Gordon Maguire, 57 years old, hails from Dublin, Ireland, and now lives in Lake Macquarie, Australia. He has been a professional sailor for 32 years. Gordon has competed in five Whitbread/Volvo Ocean Race Round the World races. He has also competed and won countless offshore races, multiple national and world championships in a variety of classes. For the last 6 years, Gordon has been the Sailing Master for the Ichi Ban programme in Sydney, Australia. Ichi Ban was just nominated the RORC yacht of the year 2018, and was the 2018 Sydney - Hobart winner.

Gordon commented on this announcement, “I truly believe that Doyle Sails offers a genuine alternative for sailors. I have used their sails on Proteus, a Maxi 72 in the Caribbean and the US, and they were very impressive. I have seen Doyle Sails evolve and develop new products over the last few years and I want to be a part of this team. I’m excited to put my name to a brand and products that I know are really good. With Nico (Chris Nicolson) joining up and setting up the massive new facility in Somersby, that was enough for me to realise that it was time to use my 30 years of professional sailing to broaden my horizons!”

Gordon joins Chris Nicholson at the Australian loft with Chris’ involvement having been announced back in August 2018. This world class loft has over 1000m2 of loft space and the business growth and efficiency is on the up – currently they are putting the finishing touches on the sails for Comanche and InfoTrack as well as working with the Flying 11’s , from one end of the scale to the other, but all important business for the Doyle Brand.

Chris Nicholson added his views to today’s news: “I have known Gordon for a long time and admired, not only his career, but also the respect he has within our sport. Gordon has the ability and common sense to get the best outcomes for customers and also keep the process enjoyable. At Doyle Sails Lake Macquarie, we are all about providing the best product backed up by the best people. It’s about securing the best talent in the world who can relate to our customer’s needs.”
