Congratulations to the Olympic Sailing Team from DeckHardware

Australian Sailing Team at MHYC Melissa Yeomans
In 2009 members of the Australian Sailing Team approached DeckHardware to see if we would be interested in supplying Liros Rope.

Being a small family business this would be a big commitment but how could we say no to such talented sailors and friends. Many of the team members we had known when they were sailing at club and state regattas back in their junior days. Mal Page has been a part of our extended sailing family for many years from the days of Flying Elevens along with the entire Jensen family. Nathan Outteridge has also been a part of our sailing family not only from his junior days but in particular his time at DeckHardware with Mel, as her on road sales rep when he was starting out on his campaigns.

Early in 2010, Liros Rope Australia formed an Official Supplier relationship with the Australian Sailing Team. We are so proud of all of the sailors and look forward to meeting up with them when they return to Australia.

Since 2010 we have introduced PROtect Tape to our range of products working with Pietro Parmegggiani. During this time Pietro worked with Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen to put together a kit for use on the 49er which is now available around the world with their photo and signatures on the cover.


We have enjoyed watching the London 2012 Olympics knowing we have been a small part in helping the sailors achieve their dreams. We look forward to following all of the sailors in their choice of future events. Thank you for all of the late nights and sharing the journey with all your fans. You are an inspiration to all young sailors and wonderful ambassadors for our sport. Let’s spread the word that sailing is one of the greatest sports and everyone can get on the water and enjoy just like we all do.

The price of legacy

In and of itself it is hardly the freshest news, and well and truly yesterday’s fish wrapper. It was also a wise choice on behalf of Team USA, for he has succeeded in both the physical and commercial arms of our sport.
