Founded in 1963, Henri Lloyd is a world-renowned market leader in technical
sailing gear and is also a premium lifestyle brand. Recognised for award
winning pioneering designs, forward thinking intelligent innovations, and for
using the latest in technical fabrics, Henri Lloyd’s technical marine
collection continues to prioritise optimum performance and protection alongside
original and modern design.
Henri Lloyd has been the technical clothing partner to the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race since 2002, and is committed to continuing the role of providing technical clothing to the Clipper 2017-18 Race crews as they race around the globe. Henri Lloyd’s valuable experience over the past 15 years of working with the Clipper Race crews and skippers ensures future crew members will be kept warm, dry and protected from the elements they will encounter during their 40,000 nautical mile adventure.
Henri Lloyd was also the proud sponsor of the winning entry in the Clipper 2013-14 Round the World Yacht Race - Henri Lloyd – 50 Years of Pioneering Spirit. The sponsorship was used as an international brand marketing, PR and hospitality platform, and accumulated £9,285,090 in PR value.
In the Clipper 2011-12 Race, Henri Lloyd launched the Henri Lloyd Clipper Race Seamanship award. The perpetual award honours Henri Lloyd’s long-term partnership with the Clipper Race, and recognises the extreme challenges faced by the Clipper Race teams. The trophy is voted by the public and a high profile judging panel, and is bestowed to the team or individual who has demonstrated the highest levels of seamanship and safety during the race.
In recent years, the Clipper Race has also been an extremely valuable test bed for the next generation of Henri Lloyd fabrics and product design. The Clipper Race organisers handpicked dedicated crew members, who in turn provided essential feedback on test products which will be incorporated into future products.
“We use the international reach of the Clipper Race, and its relevance to the serious amateur sailor, to demonstrate the performance and comfort, as well as the technical attributes and durability of Henri Lloyd technical clothing,” explains Paul Strzelecki, Henri Lloyd Chairman.
