Barton Newsline - July 2019

Good Morning Everyone,

Another month has flown by and we have lots of news to share.  Read on to find out about our sponsorship of the fabulous Team Ausome and Women in Marine, updates from Seawork and a look at how to service and customise our Classic Victory Block.

Barton Sponsor Team Ausome-Lyra in Rolex Fastnet Race 2019

It is great to be sponsoring Team Ausome-Lyra to compete in the 2019 Fastnet Race.  The charity Ausome is embarking on an epic challenge to provide nine autistic sailors the chance to participate in the testing 608 nautical mile Rolex Fastnet Race. 

We have provided all the necessary deck equipment required for the teams Nautor Swan 431. The crew will be getting very familiar with the full assortment of size 7 single, double, triple, fiddle and snatch blocks, alongside new Genoa Cars which will help get Ausome-Lyra into peak racing condition.

To discover more about the charity Ausome and the Fastnet Challenge they have set themselves visit  Donations can be made to the Ausome Fastnet campaign by clicking here.  Read the full press release on our website here.

Barton Exhibit at Seawork 2019

Our sales team had three busy days at Seawork from 11th to 13th June meeting customers from around the world on our stand in partnership with our UK distributor E.P. Barrus.  

Did you know that Barton products are used in playground equipment, for swimming pool covers, fish farm nets, on lorries, on building sites and for laying cable under the ground...  With our rigging and track systems we can solve a huge number of problems for industries outside of leisure yachting.  We welcome any challenges to safely and smoothly move or deploy objects of all shapes and sizes, so don't hesitate to get in touch with our technical team to find out if we have a solution for you.  You can click here to send them an email.

We also had to watch the hilarious cardboard boat regatta.  Amazingly only one boat sank and it was excellent to see our supplier C Quip winning the "Outstanding Vessel" prize.  Maybe next year we can persuade Christian to take to the water!
Women in Marine at Seawork 2019

Over 70 people attended the second ever Women in Marine event at Seawork on 12th June which we were pleased to sponsor again.  It was a great success with a diverse crowd from across the industry networking together. Attendees also had the opportunity to listen to interesting talks by Sue Terpilowski, Chair of Maritime UKs Womens Task Group and president of WISTA UK, and Zella Compton, playwright, librettist, lyricist, author, poet and columnist.

Did you know that our classic Victory block can be serviced and customised to suit the style of your yacht?

With the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge and Cowes Classic Weeks approaching, as well as a host of other regional Classic Boat rallies and regattas, we thought we would share how easily our Victory blocks can be customised to suit your vessel.

Sold as standard from our factory in traditional ash wood, coated with a clear high gloss marine varnish finish, the blocks are ready for immediate installation. However, unique to Barton, our Victory blocks are bolted together and can be disassembled for re-varnishing or painting to compliment the aesthetics of your classic dinghy or yacht.  Modern technology in a block which blends with your yacht's unique style, the ultimate rigging solution for classic yacht owners.  Find out more here and watch our video below to see how simple it is to take apart and reassemble one yourself.
Servicing a Victory Block - a straightforward process for maintenance and customisation.
It's not all about boats ...

"Barton Marine is pleased to help sponsor the return of the Invicta Steam Locomotive to its rightful place in Whitstable, Kent, also the home of Barton Marine! 
Built by Robert Stephenson & Co in 1829, the locomotive was supplied to the Canterbury & Whitstable Railway and hauled its inaugural train on May 3, 1830.  Known as the Crab and Winkle Line, the Invicta engine transported passengers wishing to visit the popular sailing scene at Whitstables seaside.  The Invicta was retired in 1839 as the railway made the technological switch to cable haulage by stationary engines, but fortunately, it became the worlds first preserved steam locomotive.  Last month, the Invicta was carefully crane-lifted over Whitstable High Street to assume its honorary place in the Whitstable Museum and Gallery.  Barton is proud to support the return of the Invicta to help to preserve it and its heritage for generations to come."

We hope you have a great July and you all get to spend plenty of time out on the water in your boats.

Kind Regards,

The Barton Marine Team
