News Season of success for One Design

14 Apr 2015

It was a season of success for the One Design sailors, with strong results for Doyle-powered boats across all classes. It has been one year since Andrew Brown joined the team as One Design Manager and we are delighted to see his hard work paying off in this all important market sector. 

"We want New Zealand's young sailors to be great sailors in their future lives whether racing or cruising or crewing on superyachts. These guys and girls are our future", said Brown.

"Sponsorship of grassroots events has been a huge factor with Doyle in NZ," he adds. "If sailors are supporting us we are putting it straight back to them and the events in which they compete."
