GAC Pindar, the international logistics company, has extended its long-standing partnership with World Sailing, the sport’s international governing body, for a further seven years.

The deal will see GAC Pinar continue as the exclusive marine logistics and freight partner to the organisation until 2028, bringing the pair’s relationship to over a decade, having first partnered in 2017.

In line with World Sailing’s Sustainability Agenda 2030, the duo will work together to “reduce the costs and environmental impact of logistics in the shipping of equipment to events.”

It will cover World Sailing-owned events including the Offshore World Championships, World Cup Series, World Cup Series Final, the Youth World Sailing Championships and the Sailing World Championships.

GAC Pindar will continue to serve alongside Hempel, Rolex, Musto and SAP as World Sailing partners.

The company will also support World Sailing with its mission for para sailing to be reinstated into the Olympic programme for the 2028 games in Los Angeles.

The sport featured at five successive games from Sydney 2000 to Rio in 2016, before being dropped in 2015 ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Games.
