31 March, 2015 – Global shipping, logistics and marine services provider GAC has today announced that it has renewed its partnership with Bollé Sunglasses for another year. Bollé will remain as the Official Sunglasses Supplier to Team GAC Pindar throughout the 2015 sailing season.

The renewal of the deal will see all GAC Pindar crew wearing sunglasses from Bollé’s polarized Marine collection to help their efforts in their Extreme Sailing Series and World Match Racing Tour campaigns. The Extreme Sailing Series encompasses eight tour stopovers around the globe and will culminate in Sydney Harbour, 10-13 December. The World Match Racing Tour includes six worldwide events and will conclude once again with the Monsoon Cup, Malaysia in January 2016.

The dangers of the sun should never be underestimated and we’re passionate about providing their sailors with market leading eyewear to protect and help them perform to their best in the most extreme conditions. The partnership is a perfect fit and we are proud to be on the faces of the world’s best sailors. The association with the hugely successful GAC Pindar team is fantastic and we’re incredibly excited about the year ahead.”
