May 27 - PSP, Pindar and GAC have joined forces to provide a logistics and transportation service for yacht racing teams and individuals across the world.

The international triumvirate has been established in a bid to take on the market leaders and become the world's biggest provider for race teams and individuals competing in sailing events globally.

The service was launched this month, with all three companies in the union being carefully selected for what they can bring to the table.

Having transported boats and maintenance equipment across the world for some of the biggest names in the sport, PSP will lend its worldwide experience, expertise and knowledge of race logistics to provide the physical service. GAC brings its global coverage and resources to the alliance and will be able to provide global access to experienced staff with local knowledge around the world.

Yacht racing team Pindar is a well-known and respected name is international competitive yachting circles, and it brings with it a wealth of sailing contacts to the alliance. With GAC, it jointly manages Team GAC Pindar, which this year is competing in the Extreme Sailing Series 2011 and, with skipper Ian Williams at the helm, in the World Match Racing Tour championship.

Frank Dixie, managing director of PSP, said: "This is the perfect union and the strength and experience of all three companies will create a formidable force within the market. We are already in talks with a number of potential customers and expect to see a great demand for this service. For PSP this represents yet another innovative and collaborative way of working, which will further strengthen our position internationally and give customers more choice.
