As many of you may know, Ryan Finn embarked on solo sail from New York to San Francisco in January of 2022. Finn successfully made his way around Cape Horn on his 36' Proa, Jzerro. Jzerro features Colligo Marine Extra Lightweight Headsail Furling (ELHF) Systems, Engineered Synthetic Standing Rigging, Torque Rope for the storm jib, and Colligo Dux Running Rigging.

Our products have been put to the ultimate test of strength and reliability. Ryan Finn is proof of this! This is exciting news for Colligo Marine because we are now Southern Ocean Certified™ (SOC)!

This is not only the lightest boat to complete this journey, but also the shortest boat as well. So you can imagine how much of an accomplishment this is for Ryan Finn. Also factor in that the waters rounding Cape Horn are some of the most hazardous waters in the world. Finn experienced harsh conditions, including strong winds, strong currents, and large waves.

He goes on to explain that "Colligo Marine is the only rigging I would feel confident to have on my boat."

So why wait to make the switch to synthetic standing rigging? Colligo Marine is proven to be the safest and most reliable standing rigging. Learn more here or visit our shop.
