(Source: Rigging Projects) With the European Regatta season firmly underway, its time for a
quick update. Since launching Rigging Projects, the response and the
subsequent work load has been phenomenal. Our biggest project to date –
the deck hardware and rigging replacement / service / refit of the JV72
Mini Maxi ‘Jethou’ came to a successful conclusion with their first
outing at the 2014 Gaastra Palma Vela Regatta.
|The JV72 Jethou supplied by Rigging Projects|
Rigging Project supplied a large number of
new deck hardware from various suppliers, including Winmar blocks,
take-down connector bullets from TT Rigging and a full complement of
Xtreme Series KZ furlers and swivels along with all the uni-direction
cables and strops requirements. In all, no less than 18 new cables,
ranging from steering to vang to furling, grace this stunning yacht.
Rigging Projects, working alongside the sail design team for the furling
cables and the boat crew for all the other stays, was responsible for
the length and interface specification for all these cables.
this, we’re also helping a TP52 in the decision making process on their
composite rigging retrofit, supplied the furling cables to a new
performance 60′ day sailor and are specifying a new furling system
(furler and cable) for a 100′ cruising yacht amongst other projects.
complete independence, Rigging Projects has supplied all our clients
with information and options from all the suitable candidate suppliers,
furnishing them with only the hard facts, pros and cons and our unbiased
opinion, making it easy and anonymous to choose the product that best
suits their requirements, regardless whether it is performance or budget
based. If you would like us to help you with your project, do not
hesitate to contact us or look up Tobias Hochreutener who will be in
Capri, racing on ‘Jethou’ for the Rolex Sailing Week.
