Marlow Ropes Ltd, the leading supplier of high performance running rigging to the worldwide leisure marine market, is proud to announce its appointment as Official Rope Supplier to the BAR Team for the 35th America's Cup cycle.

This partnership covers the exclusive supply of running rigging to the BAR Team for the AC World Series starting next year through to the 35th America's Cup in 2017.

Paul Honess, Leisure Marine Sales Director at Marlow Ropes commented, "Marlow are very excited to partner with the BAR Team, as we share the mutual ambition to bring the Americas Cup to the UK. BAR are putting together a serious challenge and we hope that our track record and experience in Grand Prix rigging will help them achieve that goal. As a British manufacturer, we are also very proud to be supporting Sir Ben Ainslie during the next stage of his stellar career, having worked with him through the RYA British Sailing team for many years in Olympic sailing."

James Stagg, BAR Shore Team Manager commented, "It's great to be working with Marlow Ropes, their range of running rigging is a perfect match for our varying requirements.

"As we go through the next three years of racing in the World Series and the America's Cup we will work closely together to develop specialised products, tailored for BAR's needs – and we're particularly happy to be once again partnering with a local UK manufacturer."
