Delma is supporting Miranda Merron’s voyage around the world with its Oceanmaster timepiece.
In doing so, Delma confirmed the partnership with Miranda Merron as her Official Timing Partner throughout her participation in the Vendée Globe race beginning on November 8.
Merron will compete among 33 adventurous competitors wearing an automatic Delma Oceanmaster timepiece to assist with her round the world pursuit.
Special features designed in collaboration with accomplished sailors including a unidirectional nautical bezel, points of sail indicators and tactical planner, mean she will be uniquely equipped for the journey ahead.
Merron, skipper of Campagne de France, said: “We are into the final days of preparation for the start of the 2020 Vendee Globe race and the ‘Campagne de France’ team are almost ready for Sunday’s departure. As a sailor, my focus has been on race preparation and to have Delma join me on my adventure is really great news.
“This race is all about timing and accuracy – I need a timepiece that goes beyond timekeeping and the Oceanmaster is exactly that, having been inspired by the world’s best seafarers and designed for fearless adventurers. This is going to be a thrilling partnership.”
While head of marketing for Delma, Andreas Leibundgut, added: “We are delighted to partner with Miranda Merron as she embarks on her journey around the world. We are looking forward to seeing the Oceanmaster in action and experiencing the Vendée Globe from the perspective of an accomplished female sailor.
“We are certain this experience will inspire us with new insights into the sport and look forward to supporting Miranda as she sets sail on this incredible adventure.”
The brand says the partnership will enable it to experience the world’s oceans through Miranda’s eyes.
Delma encourages people to stay tuned for updates on her progress, notable experiences, and expert insights into her incredible journey.
