Marlow Ropes are delighted to announce that US Sailing Team Nacra 17 sailor Riley Gibbs has been appointed as a Marlow Brand Ambassador for 2018.

Securing a Silver Medal at the 29er Youth Worlds in 2014 earned Riley a spot on the United States Olympic Development team and he hasn’t looked back since. Riley competes at a high level in a number of classes including the Nacra 17, 18ft skiff, 505, and Formula Kite (where he finished 4th at the 2017 Formula Kite World Championships in Oman). Riley is currently focused on the dream of competing at the Summer Olympic Games and Marlow are looking forward to seeing him achieve his dream.

Marlow’s US Sales Manager Forrest Williams comments: “Marlow Ropes work with leading sailors and race teams across both the British and US Sailing Teams as official supplier. Working with this calibre of athlete ensures our Excel dinghy range continues to develop and innovate in the small dinghy to midsized keelboat size range.”

Marlow Ropes are the leading high-performance rope manufacturer with offices in the UK and US. The range is available throughout the world through their global distribution network.
