British Sailing Podium Potential squad members James Taylor and Martin Wrigley have joined Team Allen. The pair will be campaigning a 470 with their sights set on the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.
Martin and James, both 20, have been sailing since they were six and seven years old and have successes in Optimists, RS Fevas and 420s under their belts. According to Martin, “Our biggest high was sailing in Rio last year, where the Olympics were going to be held just 7 months later, with all the Olympians. Now we are on our own Olympic journey.”
Liz Adams, MD of Allen Brothers, commented, “Martin and James have progressed rapidly through the British Sailing system and their future looks very bright. This means we now have eight Team Allen sailors in the British Sailing team and their feedback into our product research and development will be invaluable.”
