Being an island boy, I grew up surrounded by water, sand and obviously, sailing.
I will never forget when I first sailed on a skiff. The feelings of freedom and wildness are simply unforgettable. If you know what I’m talking about, if you ever lived the same experience, then you’ll understand why I find this clothing brand so appealing.

Interviewing Michael, founder of Sailing Team
Tell us about you, what’s your name? Where are you from? What do you do?
My name is Michal Szymankiewicz and I from Poznan, a city in Poland. When I was young I was a regatta sailor, but now I just sail for pleasure. My profession to gain a living is architecture.
What about your brand? What’s its name? What makes it unique?
The name is not unique. Sailing Team is a term for a group of professional sailors. I just thought that I could use these two common words which are popular between regatta sailors to name my brand.
If it were a person, what would he/she be like?
Regatta Sailor, Racing Sailor.
Simplicity is key, describe your brand in three words:
Unique. Sailing. Graphics.
For how long have you been selling T-shirts? Any remarkable story you learnt on the way? Any advice for beginners?
I only started two weeks ago. So I don’t have any stories as of yet 🙂 I am a beginner too.
Key question, why should people be interested in your brand?
Because these are not typical sailing graphics – clothes with big ships or something like that. These products are for racing sailors, dinghy boats funs and anyone else who really loves this sport.
Are you on Social Media? Where can we find you?
Yes, you can find me on Facebook.
