Marlow Ropes are pleased to announce partnership, as Official Rope Supplier, with SailGP’s Inspire Program – the global league’s community, education and outreach initiative – which relaunches in Bermuda at the opening event of SailGP Season 2 on April 24-25, 2021.
As part of this partnership, Marlow will be supporting the practical rigging program at each host venue, with the provision of rope and splicing resources for students to learn the importance of rigging and splicing, including how to make a soft shackle and diamond knot. The candidates will be left with a challenge to splice a Jib loop for the F50 catamaran and, if it passes load testing, will have their handiwork onboard one of the F50s.
It’s a great opportunity for the students involved, and we look forward to seeing their splicing skills! For more information about the outreach initiative please click here.
