OYS Rigging, Conrad Colman and the Vendee Globe

Conrad-Colman-Rounds-Cape-Horn-OYS-Turnbuckles-RiggingNew Zealander Conrad Colman is set to become the first Kiwi sailor to take part and complete the Vendee Globe, and he is doing it will a little help with rigging fittings from Ocean Yacht Systems.

Just before the start of the Vendee Globe, Conrad Colman approached OYS to replace his OYS turnbuckles on his standing rigging. OYS, custom made the fittings in a very short space of time given the rapidly approaching start of the Vendee Globe on 6th November 2016.

Conrad is now round Cape Horn and is heading North to the ultimate goal, the finish line in Les Sables d’Olonne.

Whilst Conrad is battling the elements, we are busy back in the factory with 11 superyacht rigging projects in for refit in January.

More on our rigging can be found on our website here.
