Collectively Henry Lloyd-Williams and William Alloway sail the 49er Olympic skiff,
both with a highly successful background having won numerous international and national titles between them - most recently together they competed in the Palamos Christmas Regatta (an international event) where they finished 9th overall.

We are currently fundraising to help cover some of the expenses of our 2016 season where we will travel to Barcelona for the Euros and Weymouth for a ISAF world cup. Our main expenses include the purchase of a new suit of sails. As part of the larger rewards we are offering advertising space on the hull and sails.
Our Ambition -
To bring home a gold medal for Great Britain in the Toyko. We’ve been dreaming of this since our first sail, with your support and our determination we can make it!
Why we need your support
We are currently fundraising to get us to key events in the upcoming 2016 season where we will travel to Barcelona for the Euros, and Weymouth for the ISAF World Cup.
Our main expenses include the purchase of a new suit of sails. As part of the larger rewards we are offering advertising space on the hull and sails, which will be seen by a large media base. 49er sailing is becoming heavily televised and will continue to gain momentum thanks to the Americas Cup and the Extreme Sailing series.
Why these events are important to us
These events act as stepping-stones for the games. They allow coaches to witness our full potential allowing us to gain the support we need to continue on our journey.
What happens if we don’t get the support we need?
With professional sport becoming more costly for us to be at the top of our game we require the best kit. Failure to have the best kit when the competitors do could mean a poor result in racing.
What can sponsorship do for your brand?
Travelling the world to compete in regattas allows your brand to travel with us. When you sponsor our campaign you are not just helping to buy a suit of sails but you are buying into a professional team demonstrating high levels of dedication and commitment - a perfect ambassador for you or your company.
