SailTek, Ronstan's big boat and batten system distributor in the UK have launched their new website.

SailTek are the official distributor in UK & Ireland for Ronstan Batten and Ballslide systems. The patented Ronstan Ballslide Batten system uses the existing luff groove of the mast, so that no track needs to be installed.

Ballslide cars have captive ball bearings for free running performance and can be easily loaded and unloaded from the mast when fitting or removing the mainsail.

Ronstan hardware and Batten Systems is the one choosen by the professionals, used by the majority of boats in the last Volvo and Vendee Globe race.

Technical advice on sailboat hardware, big boat fit-outs and special projects is available from Jason Belben an ex-Olympian and former employee of Ronstan and Frederiksen with 13 years of experience.
