Bremont announces ‘Speedbird’ sailor Hannah White as its latest ambassador

Bremont is delighted to announce adventurer, broadcaster and sailor #hannahwhite as the latest Bremont
Ambassador. Hannah has been at the forefront of the world of adventure and sailing since the age of 15 and
Bremont is proud to welcome her as their latest ambassador; White joins the likes of three times America’s Cup
winner Jimmy Spithill, polar explorer Ben Saunders and mountaineer Kenton Cool.
Hannah White is well known for taking on extreme challenges like the gruelling Haute Route Cycle Race and sailing
the Atlantic solo three times. Currently Hannah has her sights set on being the world’s fastest woman on water
with Project Speedbird. A very British endeavour, Project Speedbird is run by Hannah herself alongside Engineer and Project Speedbird’s
technical director Dave Chisholm. The project started with Hannah becoming the fastest person to cross the
English Channel in June 2015 and will reach a climax this year as Hannah attempts the women’s two speed records
over both 500 metres and one mile at Grafham Water Centre in Cambridgeshire. Alongside her adventures Hannah has forged a career in front of the camera as a broadcaster; presenting adventure
shows, commentating on the Extreme Sailing Series and most recently anchoring BT Sports’ coverage of the
America’s Cup, of which #bremont is the Official Timing Partner.
Bremont Co-Founder, Giles English is looking forward to working closely with Hannah and said;
“It has been great getting to know Hannah over the last few months and #bremont is really looking forward to
working with her. It is amazing to see the progress of Project Speedbird which fits perfectly with the Bremont
adventurous spirit. We are all following her progress eagerly and can’t wait to see her break the women’s world
speed records. Hannah reaches incredible speeds of over 30 knots on Speedbird; she is a true adventurer both on
and off the water.”
Hannah White emphasises the strong ties between her projects and #bremont;
“I’m thrilled to be a #bremont Ambassador. #bremont is an iconic British brand and what Dave and myself are doing
together in a little shed in the countryside is testament to British design and engineering; every part of the boat has
been designed and built in the UK. Bremont’s philosophy of ‘Tested Beyond Endurance’ describes perfectly what
we are trying to do on Grafham Water and I’m really excited to have the #bremont logo on my boat as we attempt
to break both records in March and April this year on British waters.”
