Peter Volwater (Fanatic, MauiSails) is the latest PWA tour member to file a sponsorship transfer. Volwater had been with his last board sponsor for quite a few years, but having seen Fanatics line up for 2010, he couldn’t turn them down.
Fanatic had been lacking a top 10 PWA slalom sailor, and now they have one. Volwater ended the year ranked 8th after some impressive racing in 2009, which included an excellent 5th place finish in the relentless winds of Pozo.
Fanatic Brand Manager, Craig Gertenbach commented:
“I'm very happy to welcome Peter to our Fanatic team. Peter and I first shared waves together in my hometown of Cape Town when he was just starting his world cup career. I knew then he would be one of the world's best and he proved me right. So I’m really glad to have him on our team, he will be a great boost to our new range of Falcon Slalom boards, but also as a top wave sailor we can expect a lot from him in the future, both in results and R&D!”
Volwater also commented on his transfer:
“I'm very happy to be with Fanatic. An important reason for deciding to change is the new Fanatic board range presented for 2010, and the prospects of competing on these boards in the upcoming season.“
Armed with the new Falcon range of slalom boards, we’re sure Volwater will be up there with the best of them on the race course, but lets not forget he’s a top wave sailor as well!
