A New Year brings new opportunity to begin, learn and improve your skills, and here at Marlow Ropes we are pleased to now share our 2020 UK nationwide Rope-Show programme dates.  The first event of 2020 was held at Bristol Corinthian Yacht Club and we were delighted to welcome a record breaking 60+ sailors of all ages and sailing interests. 

Launched in September 2018, Marlow has been visiting sailing clubs around the UK since the inaugural Rope-Show held at Hayling Island in October 2018.  

Marlow’s UK Leisure Marine manager David Mossman, who has been leading the Rope-Shows since their inception comments: 


“Educating sailors from all corners of the sailing community from grass roots level to Grand Prix is an important part of Marlow’s ethos.  We enjoy sharing our 200+ year knowledge, technical expertise and UK rope manufacturing history with the sailing community and have had some great feedback over the 17 months we have been delivering the Shows.  We’re looking forward to meeting more new audiences in 2020.” 


If you are a keen sailor who would like to learn more about your lines and how you can maximise performance; sign up at your nearest club for an interactive, informative education evening, or see us at one of our global events that we’ll be technically supporting or exhibiting at this year.
