Doyle Sails NZ is pleased to announce the appointment of renowned world class sailing professional Mike Sanderson. Mike will be joining the team at the beginning of June 2011 as Director of Sales and Partner for the New Zealand and Australia operations.

Managing Director Chris McMaster comments: 'We have achieved considerable growth in recent times which puts us in an ideal position now to join forces with one of the most influential professionals in the world of sailboat racing. Mike’s experience and personality perfectly complement our business; this development will allow us to increase the pace of our expansion into the Grand Prix sailboat racing market'.

Mike Sanderson was ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year in 2006, a veteran of three America’s Cup campaigns and two times Whitbread/Volvo Ocean Race winner.

Mike brings with him a wealth of experience having been involved on the technical side of sail programmes and as part of the design and build teams for both Team ABN Amro boats, as well as Skippering ABN Amro One to one of the most convincing Volvo victories in the race’s history.

In addition, Mike has extensive Superyacht experience including the high profile race boats Mari Cha III and IV which between them have dominated the Trans Atlantic Monohull record over the last twelve years.

Mike Sanderson and Head of Design, Richard Bouzaid, together present a formidable team with a huge amount of knowledge, skill and contacts in this field. Between them they have been involved at the premier level of America’s Cup, Volvo Ocean Race, Grand Prix racing, as well as local campaigns on both the technical side as well as in sailing capacities.

The knowledge base at Doyle NZ with respect to design and sail making is now second to none, and combined with the high performance results being achieved by Stratis laminates, Doyle NZ can continue to offer their customers the optimum sail product.

Doyle NZ’s increasing share of the market can be credited to the success of the Stratis facility and the company’s continual commitment to innovation and advancing design. Doyle NZ is the exclusive supplier of Stratis laminates to a network of 81 Doyle lofts around the world.

The size and scope of the company gives Mike and the team the ability to work with race boat owners and projects from the World’s largest superyachts and Grand Prix racing yachts through to local Club racing customers.
