Zhik is pleased to join the Canada SailGP Team as the Team's Official Technical Clothing Supplier for SailGP Seasons 3 and 4.

The purpose-led, global championship is the world's most exciting racing on-water. SailGP features national teams battling in short, intense races at iconic stadium-style venues across the globe, building to the grand final - and sailing's top prize of US$1 million.

Driver Phil Robertson has a strong line up of talented Canadian athletes on the team which includes Tim Hornsby, Graeme Sutherland, Georgia Lewin-Lafrance, Billy Gooderham, Tom Ramshaw, Isabella Bertold, Jareese Finch and Luke Ramsay - who are all kitted out in Zhik's new performance smocks and Eco Spandex tops.

"SailGP racing is intense. It really puts our gear to the test. Zhik is a great technical partner for us and we are looking forward to working with them to continue to develop high performance sailing gear for the sport," said Phil Robertson.

Piet Poelman, Zhik CEO adds, "I'm truly delighted for Zhik to be partnering with the Canada SailGP Team. Zhik is very supportive of inspiring initiatives to increase opportunities for athletes in sport. Same as Zhik, the SailGP Canada Team has an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for foiling. It's the perfect fit when we look at Zhik's heritage and vision for the future for our high performing technical apparel."

SailGP is the first climate positive sports and entertainment property. The league uses its global platform to champion a better world powered by nature, with a focus on accelerating a transition to clean energy.

Zhik's Sponsorship Manager, Johnny Rodgers comments, "This partnership ticks a lot of boxes for us. Zhik is focusing on lower impact, more sustainable fabrics and production methods, to further build up our supply of environmentally friendly garments. We're looking forward to a strong partner marketing programme with the Canada SailGP Team. Working with top sailors performing at the highest of level on the SailGP circuit is a fantastic platform for us to showcase Zhik to Canadian sailing and the world."
