Major Sponsor: Henri Lloyd and GORE-TEX® fabrics
Globally revered sailing and lifestyle clothing brand Henri Lloyd, together with GORE-TEX® - makers of the world's best waterproof, windproof and breathable fabrics - have excitingly partnered up to support our sailing expeditions aboard Teleport!
"Long term business partners Henri Lloyd and GORE-TEX® fabrics are delighted to support this adventure. Our products are engineered for extreme conditions, so an opportunity to have our garments used for what they are intended for is an opportunity not to be missed!"
GORE-TEX® fabrics have been a key supporter of Chris's various adventures since 2005, and now with Henri Lloyd brought into the fold as well, Chris and Jess are honoured to partner with two such vibrant and innovative companies, responsible for some of the world’s best outdoor, sailing and lifestyle gear.
To us, GORE-TEX® and Henri Lloyd products symbolise the pursuit of perfection, continually working at the leading edge of what’s possible from fabrics and garments – just as those that wear these products are pushing back the boundaries of what is possible from themselves. When working perfectly together, the impossible can come within reach.
Henri Lloyd has five decades of experience in designing and producing innovative, premium quality sailing gear, and their products have been eagerly adopted by famous pioneers of global circumnavigation such as Sir Francis Chichester, Sir Robin Knox-Johnson and Sir Ranulph Fiennes, as well as modern olympic champions, Americas’s Cup yacht crews, Formula One Teams and more! Not limited to sailing, a collaboration with inspirational Italian designer Olmes Carretti on their lifestyle range has cemented Henri Lloyd’s reputation and credentials in the world of fashion as well.
Chris and Jess have a lot of experience with various types of GORE-TEX®’s waterproof, windproof and breathable fabrics – Chris is a member of ‘The GORE-TEX® Test Team’, and it truly is a fantastic product. We can still remember when we used to wear plastic rainjackets when hiking, wondering if we were perhaps getting more wet from our own perspiration than we would standing in the rain. Hiking, sailing etc is supposed to be fun, and GORE-TEX® products - be they jackets, pants, lined boots etc – allow us to get the maximum enjoyment from our outdoor experiences by keeping us dry and feeling ventilated no matter what the weather dishes out - even in the midst of a North Atlantic Ocean Gale.
Gore's revolutionary patented membrane technology, proven for almost 30 years, forever changed the standard of performance outerwear when it was introduced, and the world has never looked back.
We are thrilled to have both Henri Lloyd and GORE-TEX® fabrics supporting our sailing expeditions aboard yacht Teleport.
