GTSS team travel to GAC Headquarters, Dubai

Posted: February 27, 2015

The GTSS team had the opportunity to travel to Dubai last week to meet with different members of the GAC team at the GAC Headquarters.  

Dubai is located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf and is one of the seven emirates that make up the country. The city of Dubai is located on the emirate’s northern coastline. It has emerged as a global city and business hub of the Persian Gulf region, and is a major transport hub for both passengers and cargo.

The purpose of the visit was to firstly introduce our new GTSS team to GAC in Dubai and to explore the synergies between GAC Corporate Academy and GAC Training and Service Solutions (GTSS). We intend to build on our current course offerings with GAC Bunkers going forward and it was a great opportunity to discuss future plans between both groups.

GAC PINDAR FINISH SIXTH AT THE EXTREME SAILING SERIES IN NICE, FRANCE

Posted: October 14, 2014

GAC Training and Service Solutions (GTSS) were present at the Extreme Sailing Series in Nice this month. GAC is the official logistics partner of the Extreme Sailing Series.

Act 7 in Nice, France saw the GAC Pindar team finish sixth in the series.

“Despite the tame 4 knot winds, GAC Pindar started the week strongly, finishing in second twice and in third, to end Day 1 in fourth position on the leader board. Consistency was hard to come by in Nice, with all teams enduring mixed fortunes at the hands of the placid conditions.

Summoning the experience of British Olympian Hugh Styles, GAC Pindar put themselves in contention for an overall medal position on Day 3 with two second place finishes in succession, followed by a third place finish in a fine run of form on the French coast.

GAC Pindar ended Act 7 with a second place finish on Day 4, showing signs of promise ahead of the final Act that will see Nathan Wilmot’s crew race in Sydney (11—14 December) as the Extreme Sailing Series reaches its conclusion in the iconic Sydney Harbour.”
