In January 2012, two young sailors learned they had been selected to compete with Team GB in the London 2012 Olympic Games. Luke Patience and Stuart Bithell, who race in the Men’s 470 Class, have been sailing together since 2009 and have enjoyed a steady rise in the International Sailing Federation rankings.

They needed a new boat for the Olympic Games so one was ordered from New Zealand but they needed sponsors to cover the cost. THM were approached and we were very impressed with their focus, determination and enthusiasm. We agreed, in conjunction with RYA Scotland, to put together a package that would buy the boat together with related support.
