GSC is also due to announce a crucial Media and Distribution partnership agreement next week that will increase the reach of Event communication. Meanwhile we are pleased to say the website is being translated into French, Spanish and Italian paving the way for a truly Global Event.
Chimpanzee range of energy bars will certainly be a welcome break in the daily efforts of GSC skippers during their circumnavigation which, at times, will certainly prove challenging. Offshore sailors are no strangers to resourcing to energy bars when looking for an energy boost, or to keep going in bad weather and storms.
GSC skippers will be spoilt for choice, and will be able to choose an energy bar full of chunks of dark chocolate or a delicate one with apple & ginger, an old fashioned delight full of surprises. Chimpanzee's range of energy boosting bars is vast with some giving a refreshing lemon taste or others filled with cashew nuts and naturally made caramel. The choice is yours: dates, raisins, apricot, peanuts and all rigorously No GMO, No preservatives, 100% Natural.
Chimpanzee also produces other treats for the adventurer, with a range of handy “Energy Gels” useful when you just need an instant energy boost with popular choices such as lemon, chocolate, pineapple and forest fruit.
Keeping hydrated is crucial when sailing solo and electolytes are crucial in contributing to the maintenance of endurance performance. For this reason Chimpanzee also has a range of isotonic sachets to be added to drinks particularly indicated during prolonged endurance exercise and to enhances the absorption of water.
GSC Event director Marco Nannini commented “When we packed our daily food rations we always included a treat as well as two main meals and a breakfast. We also had some low quality orange tasting drink additive to make water somewhat more appealing but what we had bought tasted awfully chemical. The range of energy bars, gels and isotonic drink sachets by Chimpanzee, all 100% natural, would have certainly been a much healthier and welcome option during our circumnavigation.
We are happy that Chimpanzee has chosen the Global Solo Challenge to give visibility to their brand and offered a discount to participants as we know skippers will look at various options to integrate their rather grim round the world diet with something to give them an energy and morale boost, especially in those long grey days in the Southern Seas".
