Alpha Ropes® lines join advanced technology materials, a state-of-the-art production facility and a young but very experienced team. Therefore, Alpha Ropes® is all over in several boats in top sailing regattas such as America´s Cup, Volvo Ocean Race, Vendee Globe, 52 Series, Maxi Class, Olympic Games, among many others major sailing events. Alpha Ropes® is a brand of Cotesi Yachting division. Ropes and lines are vital to the performances of both the crew members and the overall performance since they are the bearer of forces from the sails and the hull, translating to energy and hence, speed. Speed often exceeding 3 times the wind speed itself. It is a combination of both energy distribution as well as a matter of crew handling. www.alpha-ropes.com
From 2018 SAP Extreme Sailing Team is proud to announce Yamaha as their Official Supplier of outboard motors. Fast, powerful, and reliable support boats are a vital part of competing on the Extreme Sailing Series. Low-engine noise is a less-obvious feature, but one that ensures clear communication between the race team and the coach. After six years of use and abuse, the Yamaha outboards we’ve used on our two team RIBs haven’t missed a beat. In 2018 with the support of Yamaha, our RIBS will now each be powered by a brand-new Yamaha F225FEXT which roll power, efficiency, and low-weight into a very sleek package.
