Magic Marine is proud to be supporting the 49er and 49erFX Europeans in Barcelona, Spain as Official Clothing Partner of the classes. The event marks a turning point between the 2016 quadrennial and the 2020 Tokyo quadrennial. As most of the Olympic fleet has been decided, many top teams who will not be racing in Rio will take a break, or maybe just a breath, before reassessing their futures in Olympic sailing. At the same time, for many teams this championship marks the beginning of their road to Tokyo, trying to get a head start on the group that will chase the next prize.
Magic Marine works hard to promote the class and inspire young kids. We do this by promoting our heroes and also giving them an opportunity to give back. This can be giving back to their coach, or youth sailors for example. In this we work together with the 49er class. The first signs of the Magic Marine heroes campaign you can see in the daily videos of the Europeans. At the end of every movie you see one of the Olympic sailors telling a secret about sailing the 49er! You can check out the first video here.
