St Katherines Dock was the setting for Saturday mornings Henri Lloyd Clipper Naming Ceremony and what better way to celebrate the marine clothing brands first team sponsorship of the Clipper Round The World Yacht Race than with a champagne breakfast on board! Cube welcomed founder of online menswear bible Menswearstyle.co,uk’s Craig Landale along with Style Experts Martell Campbell and Donya Patrice to enjoy the morning and with the great British weather playing its part perfectly we couldnt have asked for more.
The event which will see the skipper, Canadian Eric Holden and his crew circumnavigate the globe, stopping at 12 countries along the way got under way on Sunday 1st September and we for one will be keeping a close eye on the progress of the Henri Lloyd team.
Henri Lloyd CEO Paul Strzelecki explains the thoughts behind sponsoring the team:
“Henri Lloyd has been the Technical Clothing Supplier to the Clipper Race for the past five editions of the race. The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race echoes many of our own values of pioneering spirit and innovation as well as being one of the few truly global adventures…We know from the past 50 years that there is no greater test for foul weather gear than a global circumnavigation to demonstrate its true quality.”
