What’s more, with the return of the America’s Cup to a monohull boat, now some of the America’s Cup teams have teamed up with the TP52 teams, to practice in a similar boat.

This year, Future Fibres supplied all nine new build’s with- Future Fibres RAZR solid carbon rigging; a rigging choice saved only for the most elite inshore Grand Prix race boats, which delivers a great mast tune and windage performance for minimum weight.

This is following on from our success last year, which saw the winning TP52, Azzurra, sport our ECsix rigging, along with eight other TP52 boats.

Our parent company, Southern Spars, for the second year running is also the suppliers of the new generation of TP52 rigs. In producing the rigging, Future Fibres use the maximum working loads supplied by Southern Spars to build the custom rigging to suit each of the team’s specifications.
