Ronstan International is continuting its support for sailing and for Summer Sailstice with three great Ronstan prizes - S/Steel Clear Start™ Watch, Crew Bag, and Sailing Backpack.
The company has grown well beyond its Australian market leader origins in dinghy hardware and general marine fittings, to become an international powerhouse of the marine industry. Ronstan has a reputation among sailors as the equipment of choice on boats from the flying Moths and the Olympic sailing classes to the record-setting offshore multihull sailboats and the Volvo Race fleet.
Based in Melbourne, Australia, Ronstan attributes much of its success to its close ties with yacht racing’s elite competitors -
"The challenge of producing top-end, innovative hardware to satisfy the extreme demands of racing conditions has led to many of the technical breakthroughs that have put us on top. We continue to actively participate in the promotion of sailing, both for pleasure and competition, and many of our staff are active sailors themselves."
Whether you're a racing sailor, offshore cruiser, or inbetween, Ronstan has a full range of yacht and dinghy sailing products including blocks, sheaves, travellers, furlers, rope cleats, stainless steel fittings, sheet and halyard winches and much more.
Ronstan is a world-leading manufacturer of sailboat hardware, rigging components, sailing wear and accessories, created through innovative thought and real-world testing.
Take a closer look at the prizes Ronstan has donated for Summer Sailstice sailors:
The Stainless Steel Clear Start™ Watch is water resistant to 150ft and features all the functions you expect from a quatily start watch - "Racing sailors know how hard it can be to get the watch going at the exact second the start sequence is commenced. With the handy SYNC function, you can quickly resynchronise the Clear Start™ to the official race time. A simple press of a button allows you to drop down to the next minute, allowing you to get your starting sequence back in perfect SYNC at the next opportunity."
The 26L Roll-Top Weatherproof Backpack features a water-resistant roll-top seal, splash-resistant front pocket with water-resistant zip, side-mounted accessory straps and mesh bottle holder. Plus it has a fully adjustable padded backpack harness with chest strap.
"Our products have become the sailing equipment of choice for racing dinghy classes, including the International Moth, as well as many high-profile offshore racing programs like the Volvo Ocean Race fleet. If you have a sailboat, you need Ronstan."
