Land Rover Ambassador, Sarah Ayton OBE said, “It’s really important to me to help young people find their passion. To bring new inspiration to the next generation is an incredible privilege. There are so many exciting and rewarding careers in the sports industry and working with Land Rover and Lendy Cowes Week to broaden the horizons of so many children and young people is a great privilege.”
Commenting on the partnership with Land Rover UK, CWL’s Commercial & Marketing Director, Kate Johnson, said, “We’re thrilled that Land Rover has taken the decision to join us at Lendy Cowes Week. Its support of sailing at the grassroots level will be really valuable to the event, and we know that the range will be extremely popular with the Lendy Cowes Week audience. Land Rover is celebrating its 70th birthday this year, while Cowes Week moves ever-closer to the 200th anniversary of its first royal regatta. Both brands are huge British icons, and their shared values and heritage make this a very special partnership.”
