MauiSails and Kevin Pritchard End Alliance
8th January 2008
(Maui, Hawaii, USA - January, 2008)
MauiSails announced today the departure of Kevin Pritchard, who left the brand to pursue new opportunities.
Phil McGain, President of the company, commented on the new direction for his sailing partner of the past fifteen years; “We wish Kevin the best of luck. We have all enjoyed working with him over the years. It’s always challenging to end long partnerships, but sometimes change is invaluable and must be accepted with gratitude and appreciation.”
Designer, Barry Spanier commented, “Working with Kevin and helping him to become a World Champion has been very satisfying and personally rewarding. His participation will be missed. But sometimes it’s like Yogi Berra once said, ‘If there’s a fork in the road, you have to take it.’ I certainly wish him the best in his new circumstances.”
MauiSails would also like to announce and welcome Norio Asano (J-25) of Led Iron, our new Japanese distributor. We are excited to develop our relationship with Norio, and look forward to years of his high level performance. Norio is the current slalom racing national champion and is a very accomplished wave sailor.
We are also happy to continue working with Martin Van Meurs, who will be our dedicated speed master, and we expect him to follow his amazing fifty knot GPS speed with higher levels of achievement and possible World Records. Martin will continue to administer the online Speed forum.
