New sales representative for Doyle Sails Solent
Ian Barker has joined Doyle Sails Solent as local sales representative.
Ian has ten national dinghy sailing titles to his name together with two world championship titles and an Olympic silver medal.
He also has experience of sailmaking and rigging experience, coaching and lecturing.
“I’ve been keeping an eye on what Doyle New Zealand has been up to over the last few years because as a sailmaker I'm impressed by the technology they use and the products they produce," he said.
"As a happy coincidence, the UK loft has recently been invigorated by new ownership, that I will be joining to bring these fantastic sails to the UK market, particularly in grand prix."
Company owner Tom Milne added: "On behalf of Doyle Sails Solent, I’m delighted to welcome Ian to our team. As an Olympian, international coach and sailmaker Ian's very successful background is a great match with Doyle.”
