Dartmouth Brands is reaching out to retailers with strong water sport client bases with its Spinnaker range of watches.
Spinnaker is a nautical themed brand with timepieces positioned for lovers of yachting and diving. 2016 was the year to effectively relaunch and secure the brand’s identity and the business has secured some major sponsorships and appoint a few great ambassadors throughout this year.
In the free diving world, Spinnaker is working with Adam Stern, a three times Australian record holder in the free immersion class and Alexey Molchano, the deepest competitive free diver in the world, holding a world record with a 128 metre dive.
In competitive sailing, many of Spinnaker’s sailing ambassadors in the 49’er class are currently competing in the Rio 2016 games.
“Our highest profile sponsorship programs in the sailing world would be the teams in the M32 World Match Racing Series. It’s an exciting tour, action packed and features some of the world’s best skippers. A great team within this tour is The Magenta Project who competes in the World Match Series and the Volvo Ocean Race. We’ve been able to sponsor their team and organisation, which helps to empower females of all ages and backgrounds in the world of sailing,” says Jim Clawley, country manager for Dartmouth Brands.
