Budding Olympic sailor Dylan Fletcher was welcomed aboard when Hollywood Monster invited guests to join directors at the world’s biggest sailing regatta.
The current European champion shared his expertise and insight as guests of one of the biggest names in the print and signs business watched the races at the annual Cowes Regatta at the Isle of Wight.
Dylan and teammate Alain Sign sail the 49er, which is the Olympic High Performance double-handed skiff. They are part of Skandia Team GBR, in the Performance Squad and are working hard for the single selection spot for the London 2012 Olympic Games where they aim to take the gold medal.
Dylan was taking a well-earned break from his intensive training and competition schedule after clinching the European title.
Hollywood Monster managing director Tim Andrews, a Cowes veteran and boating enthusiast, invited Dylan on board his Fairline cruiser to join guests – including BBC radio presenter Joanne Malin – from the media and commercial property sector.
Tim said: “Dylan was fantastic company and it was great to hear his insight into the racing at the regatta. Some of our guests were attending their first Cowes Week but had the benefit of learning some of the finer points of sailing from one of the sports’ rising stars. We wish him all the best as he continues his bid to represent Great Britain at the Olympics and win the gold medal he’s working so hard for.”
