World-champion tactician and helmsman Cameron Appleton has joined Quantum Sails where he will support grand prix and big-boat clients while working closely with the company’s design and product development teams. Appleton will also join the TP52 Quantum Racing program for 2019 in the role of tactician. Cameron is one of the top talents in the sport today, achieving outstanding success in a number of offshore one-design classes including the RC44, Melges 40, Melges 20, and Melges 32.
“Cameron is one of today’s most in-demand sailing pros, and we’re excited about the expertise and experience he brings to Quantum,” says Quantum CEO Ed Reynolds. “Cam will be sailing and working closely with clients to make sure they are receiving the value they expect and have everything they need to achieve success.” Appleton will also be an integral and active part of Quantum’s sail development teams, spanning design, engineering, production, and marketing. “Cam’s personal experience and the insights gleaned through his interactions with owners, sailing pros, and industry leaders will loop into our processes to help evolve and develop our product and service offerings,” says Reynolds.
"Joining Quantum Sails, a leading brand that delivers high-level products to our sport, gives me a chance to continue helping owners and teams," says Appleton. "Sails are ever-evolving and when it comes to propelling us around the course, we spend the most effort adjusting and trying to get them right, so I look forward to helping provide support and insight for product development. It’s a great opportunity to be joining the TP52 and sailing alongside the team as we look to continue the quest to stay at the top."
