London Olympic gold medallists, Malcolm Page and Mathew Belcher, gained a couple of new training partners for a day as part of the Ultimate Sailing Package by Henri Lloyd at Middle Harbour Yacht Club.

Michael Yip of Carlingford and his partner were the lucky winners of a once-in-a-lifetime Audi Sailing Experience, involving a personal sailing lesson by dual-Olympic gold medalist, Malcolm Page, and his London Olympic champion skipper, Mathew Belcher. On top of that, Michael received a $1000 Henri Lloyd sailing kit and the chance to test-drive the new luxury Audi Q3 SUV for a week. On a classic Sydney spring day, Malcolm and Mathew swapped their Olympic-winning 470 for their new SB3 and treated their protégés to a master class in sports boat sailing. 'It was a privilege to meet and speak with both Mat and Malcolm as well as learning the basics about the SB3s. I’m really proud of them as they brought home gold,' said an elated Michael Yip.

The competition coincided with the launch of the new Henri Lloyd signature store at Chatswood Chase, Sydney. Featuring deep mahogany shelving and a colour scheme of Harbourmaster blue and sailcloth white, the new store reflects the authenticity and heritage of Henri Lloyd, showcasing a mix of its dynamic technical range and Spring/Summer 2012 lifestyle collection.
