Launching in September 2018, Marlow Ropes are delighted to invite Sailing Clubs across the UK to host the new MARLOW ROPES ROPE-SHOW, an interactive practical workshop which will enable sailors of all types to learn more about their lines and how to maximise their performance.
With a history dating back to the 1800s and known as the leading UK rope manufacturer, Marlow have led the way in engineering quality rope using exotic fibres for various applications across Leisure Marine. As official suppliers to the British and US sailing teams and as a partner to many of the top sailors and competitive race teams in the industry, their products and reputation have been developed as a result of listening to their user’s feedback and innovating new solutions to meet the needs of the changing sport.
Marlow’s rope experts will bring the Rope-Show to a different Sailing Club around the UK once per month with the exception of August and September. 10 dates will be scheduled over the course of the yearly programme, to be announced in September at the Southampton Boat Show.
The workshops can accommodate a maximum of 50 individuals (including children over the age of 13) to include members and non-members depending on the club’s policy.
The content of the Rope-Show will include four key areas with break-out sessions for splicing tutorials.
- MAXIMISING PERFORMANCE
- ROPE MAINTENANCE & MANAGEMENT
- SAFETY & LIFETIME INDICATORS
- LEARN HOW TO SPLICE
The Rope-Show is free to host and Marlow will also supply prizes for the Club to use in a fundraising raffle or prize draw. Marlow is keen to work with your club for cross promotion and will be producing a Rope-Show programme
