The Marlow Rope-Show is a UK nationwide education initiative that Marlow Ropes launched in September 2018 at the Southampton Boat Show.
Since it's inception in 2018, Marlow's Leisure Marine team have been visiting sailing and yacht clubs around the UK to share technical expertise and knowledge built up over 200+ years from the world-leading UK rope manufacturer. Marlow's unique position in the marine industry and knowledge of ropecare and maintenance continues to benefit sailors of all ages and all types with a specialist, interactive programme that covers the following:
Line construction and evolution
Wear & Tear
Fatigue & lifetime indicators
Maximising performance - getting the most from your rope
Dyneema and technical fibres - what are they and why use them
Free to host and free to attend, the aim of the Marlow Rope-Show is to equip sailors with expert knowledge and technical know-how in order to make better informed decisions about the lines they use and the way they use them. Booking needs to be made directly with the sailing/yacht club. Please note: events are usually held around 7-9pm on a weekday evening and are suitable for sailors aged 11 and above.
