The GAC Group’s sailing logistics specialist GAC Pindar has been appointed the official shipping and logistics provider for the GC32 Racing Tour 2019 season which kicks off in Italy at the end of next month.
2019 is the sixth year of the GC32 Racing Tour. It features fast GC32 catamarans allowing regular sailors, both pros and keen amateurs, to experience competitive sailing at speeds of 30+ knots at venues across Southern Europe. This year’s GC32 Racing Tour five-venue circuit is stronger than ever, following its consolidation with the GC32 teams from the Extreme Sailing Series. At least ten teams will compete in some of the best sailing venues in Italy, Spain and Portugal.
GAC Pindar is charged with handling the transportation of yachts, equipment and other cargo for the events and will draw on its wealth of experience with its previous involvement moving the infrastructure for the GC32 Racing Tour since 2015, as well as for the Volvo Ocean Race and other high profile sailing events.
Christian Scherrer, GC32 Racing Tour Manager, says: “We are happy to continue working with GAC Pindar and this year, we are extending our collaboration with the assignment as Official Shipping and Logistics Partner for the GC32 Racing Tour 2019.”
GAC Pindar’s Operations Manager, Beth King, adds: “Moving the fleet of GC32 catamarans is a task that has been close to our hearts for many years. We are delighted to continue our relationship with the GC32 Racing Tour as it takes a new direction, bringing two fleets together as one, and we look forward to playing our part in the success of the event.”
