Marlow Ropes are delighted to offer visitors attending BOOT, Dusseldorf 2019, the opportunity to expand their seamanship skills with daily splicing tutorials with professional rigger Holger Lehning from Ready 4 Race.

Holger has worked with Marlow Ropes for 5 years on a variety of top projects including the rigging of Platoon who won second place in the TP52 Super Series 2018, Maxi World Champions MOMO (Maxi 72) and Varuna (KER 51) who were the overall winners of the Antigua to Bermuda Race.

This year, Marlow are encouraging visitors to develop their sailing knowledge with aninteractive Technical and Innovation zone on Stand 11D25, opposite German Distributor Gotthardt. Here, visitors can try various knots, test which ropes work best in cleats, spot rope fatigue and lifetime indicators and learn about Marlow's technical innovations included in their Grand Prix range; used by the US & UK America's Cup Teams, Maxi World Champions MOMO and the top three winners of the TP52 Super Series.

Splicing workshops and ropecare advice will be scheduled at 11am, 2pm and 4.30 pm daily.
