Hyde offers training and support in Scotland

Friday, June 03, 2011

The Hyde Sails team made its presence felt at the recent Ice breaker weekend in Ardrossan, underlining the growth of the brand in Scotland

The weekend of April 16-17 saw a good turn of boats for the Sunbird 'Ice Breaker' IRC training
weekend in Ardrossan. This was a coaching weekend run by Barry Dunning, organised by Sunbird Yachts and sponsored by Geronimo sailing. Hyde Sails’ Paul Austin together with two of the Scottish Hyde Sails agents, Kevin Aitken and Chic Medley also attended to lend a hand.

With eight short windward-leeward races over the two-day event, attendees were treated to a fairly steady 10-12 knot wind much as forecast on Saturday, with Sunday’s conditions better than expected with 7-8 knot breeze from the SSW which built to 10+ knots with sunshine for the afternoon races. Over the course of the two days, the  Hyde team was able to follow all the boats - not just the Hyde powered ones - and jump aboard to give a range of handy advice, tuning and training tips. It was a highly successful event, which certainly shook away the winter cobwebs.

Paul Austin explained: 'The Hyde presence in Scotland has grown
dramatically over the past 18 months with our three agents being very
proactive across their areas, and working extremely hard to grow the brand’s presence.'
