8th Dimension Performance Sailing
“I set high targets with our project to have eight Dragons sailing around Europe for charters, clinics and private events. For us, the fact that we could count on GAC Pindar’s experience and capacity to start moving our boats was a key element and allowed us to focus on the commercial and financial side of our start-up company. The process of delivering our boats from the UK to Portugal was very smooth and accurate, allowing us to start with our schedule with no issues. We are looking forward to continuing to work with GAC Pindar in the years to come and provide quality sailing to the lovers of our sport.”
