"I'm very happy to have this opportunity to work together with Hugh and the team at A&T. As a professional sailor I admire the build quality evident in A&T instruments and can see that the exceptional performance has been developed through years of experience on the water.

I'm looking forward to introducing owners and captains in the classic fleet to an outstanding product."
