Dubarry Announced as RORC Partner

13th July 2009

London's Royal Ocean Racing Club announced Galway firm Dubarry of Ireland as the Partner/Supplier of footwear and clothing to the RORC Race Team and Rating Office

Dubarry is a name that needs little introduction. Their reputation as a leading brand of performance marine footwear and clothing is evidenced by observing the popularity of their GORE-TEX® lined boots at regattas the world over.

Dubarry’s Marketing Director, Michael Walsh said: “Being involved with the Royal Ocean Racing Club is a perfect fit for Dubarry. The RORC team are out on the water in all conditions, facilitating a packed race programme each season. They need tough and reliable clothing and footwear to perform their job, whether in the office or out on the water. We are happy to be involved with one of the most prestigious clubs and leading forces in yacht race management.”

The RORC’s chief executive, Eddie Warden Owen is very pleased to have Dubarry on board: “Dubarry products offer unrivalled performance, quality and comfort and their passion for sailing aligns well with that of our volunteers and race staff involved in organising over 20 major races each season, both at home and overseas.” Team
