Kite Packaging sponsor their Fireball World Champion

Following the recent world championship success of one of their employees and his team mate, Kite have offered them a sponsorship 

Richard Anderton, Commercial Manager of our Portsmouth branch, along with his team mate Tom Gillard, were defending their 2015 title in the Fireball World Championships and we recently announced they had gone on to become 2016 Fireball World Champions. The event comprised a series of 10 races over 6 days, with the best 8 results from the series counting towards the final score.

The success was highly regarded by all Kite employees, and the group is pleased to announce their sponsorship of Richard and Tom. Kite understands the true importance of partnerships and how a strong partnership can achieve great results. By providing Richard and his team mate Tom Gillard with sponsorship, they can continue their time on the water and working towards further success.

Richard Anderton Commented, “Kite’s sponsorship will really impact our ability to perform at events. Over the course of a year we have to invest a lot into the boat and campaign to keep ourselves at the front of the fleet, with equipment that is up to the job. The environment can be tough, and it’s important to know we have reliable equipment. We spend a lot of time training and competing at events, again Kite’s sponsorship enables us to spend more time on the water, and this has a direct impact on our results – performance is directly related to team work, and we spend a lot of time working on that partnership.”
