A unique offshore ropes and rigging technical service comes to Cowes Week thanks to leading British rope manufacturer, Marlow Ropes.
Marlow Ropes launches its Marlow-rigged rib that will provide offshore support to sailors on the water. The Marlow rib can be called on 07808 577115 to assist with rope replacements and rigging requirements at sea, with Marlow’s rope experts on board to help sailors with any issues they may have.
David Mossman of Marlow Ropes said: “Our superior offshore and shoreside rope service allows our rope experts to be better placed than ever for all rope and rigging requirements. For Cowes Week we are also the ordering and drop off point for emergency overnight repair. Marlow will also provide an advice service for any rigging issues that sailors may have.”
To deliver technical shoreside support Marlow is working with its Cowes’ stockist, Spencer’s Rigging, located on St Mary’s Road, PO31 7SX, only 100 metres behind Cowes High Street.
David Mossman, Marlow Ropes said: “Cowes Week is a great British regatta steeped in heritage similar to our own British heritage that dates back to the 1800s – Cowes Week remains one of the annual highlights in our sailing diary.”
Spencer’s Rigging celebrates its 20th anniversary this year and is stocked with Marlow’s high performance ropes of all sizes for small keel boats up to 40’ plus boats. Products range from SK78, SK99 standard and Max cores, to high performance covers for emergency repairs and finished MGP ropes. It will also have the new Excel R8 dinghy line that has received great reviews amongst the top race teams heading for Tokyo 2020.
Marlow Ropes is manufactured in Hailsham, East Sussex. It is the official partner to the US and UK sailing teams, the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race, TFW Foiling Week and The Offshore Academy amongst others.
As the competitive sailor’s brand of choice, Marlow has been providing technical support to Cowes Week for almost a decade.
