Princecroft Willis proud to represent gold medal hopefuls

A South Coast accountancy firm will be watching the results of the 2012 Olympics with particular interest.

Princecroft Willis (PcW) boasts a number of the UK's top Olympians, especially in sailing, among its clients.

Partner Martin Aldridge - himself a former windsurfing world champion - looks after gold medallists Ben Ainslie, Ian Percy, Andrew Simpson and Paul Goodison as well as Nick Dempsey and other top sportsmen and women.

In fact, he believes PcW has at some stage handled finance matters for all 16 members of the Team GB sailing squad and many of the Paralympics squad  either currently or in the past. Services provided range from accountancy advice through to complex tax planning.

Martin said: "In many of the Olympic classes we have some of the very best talented sailors in the world. It's not unrealistic to say that all the sailors selected to represent us in Weymouth will have a genuine chance of winning gold.

"Great Britain is the world's top Olympic classes sailing nation with the British Olympic team sailors topping the medal table at the past three Games in 2000, 2004 and 2008.

"We're very proud to represent so many members of the Team GB sailing squad and, as with the rest of the nation, will be hoping that our clients succeed in their quest for gold."
