US SAILING, the USA national governing body for the sport, has announced that it has selected New England Ropes as the Official Cordage Sponsor to the US Sailing Team, the US Disabled Sailing, and the US Youth World Team.
The new partnership looks ahead to 2005 and beyond to supply the top sailors in the country with the latest and highest quality of ropes. As part of the agreement, New England Ropes will outfit all team-members with a custom line-package, developed with input from the athletes and coaches.

'We are very excited to be chosen by US SAILING as Official Cordage Sponsor, and we look forward to getting every sailor on the US Sailing Team geared up for international competition,' said Kevin COUGHLIN, Market Manager for New England Ropes. 'New England Ropes recently introduced a line of dinghy and one-design ropes that will help the team achieve top results.'

'New England Ropes is a perfect fit for the performance needs of the country's top sailors,' said US SAILING's High Performance Director Gary BODIE. 'With the new partnership, the athletes will play a key role in the development of new ropes that they will enjoy on the water.'
