Marlow Ropes’ Continued Support of the Offshore Academy
June 14, 2017 | posted by Nichola Bushnell
Marlow Ropes is delighted to join the Offshore Academy’s family of partners and sponsors as Official Rope Supplier.
Charles Darbyshire Project Director of The Offshore Academy said: “It’s great to have brands like Marlow continuing their support of future solo sailors, having the best rope on-board our boats is a necessity. While Marlow stakes its reputation on its products, our sailors are out there staking their lives on it so it’s important to have that quality assured. It’s great news for The Academy to have the continued support of our long standing partners allowing our sailors to compete at a high level.”
As a founding partner, Marlow’s support to The Academy’s sailors often extends to Academy alumni sailors too – who go on to join professional yacht racing teams such as Team Phaedo and Land Rover BAR Academy.
Paul Honess, sales director of Marlow Ropes said: “Our support of The Offshore Academy, Britain’s only centre of excellence for solo and shorthanded yacht racing, dates back to its inception in 2009. The Figaro fleet is a very competitive One Design class, competing at the highest level, and so it requires the best rope possible. Marlow’s selection of Grand Prix products provides lightweight yet high strength capabilities delivering all round performance for the sailors.”
