Sailingfast celebrate partnership with Ovington Boats

Sailingfast and Ovington Boats are delighted to announce new developments to their long-standing partnership.

Since 2010, both companies have grown and worked closely together, this new development will further cement the partnership as Sailingfast comes onboard to support key products.

Sailingfast will take on responsibility for promoting key classes in Scotland, working with class associations and supporting the sailors.

Sailingfast owner, Duncan Hepplewhite, has a unique knowledge of the 29er, having raced it and worked with Ovington Boats at the 29er European, Worlds and World Sailing Youth Worlds between 2012 and 2016.

Duncan Hepplewhite comments: “Sailingfast was established in 2002 with the aim of supplying the very best products and keeping sailors on the water. Our partnership with Ovington Boats and their reputation for making the very best boats sits perfectly with our ambitions. We are delighted to be working with Ovington Boats and have some very exciting plans for the future.”

Nathan Batchelor, UK Sales Manager at Ovington Boats Ltd explains “Sailingfast plays a key role in the Junior and Youth classes north of the border and is perfectly positioned to help Ovington Boats support and grow our Optimist and 29er fleets in Scotland.”

Ovington Boats based in North Shields, England, have a world-wide reputation for their high-performance boat building.

During the 2012 – 2016 period Duncan and his wife Emma (co-owners at Sailingfast Ltd) raced the VX One at club and national level.
