MARLOW is the official rope supplier for Golden Globe Race skipper, Susie Goodall, the only female competitor and also one of the youngest.

Susie’s Rustler 36 Starlight has been entirely rigged by the rope manufacturer, all custom made at Marlow’s factory in the UK using the same materials as those used by the winner of the first Golden Globe Race, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, in 1968.

Marlow produced the replica ropes and rigging using only polyester, instead of modern Dyneema and Vectran fibres that are the usual rope of choice for offshore races such as this.
