Australian sailing hardware manufacturer Ronstan have got onboard as a sponsor of the 2016 Australian representatives competing in the European and World Championships on Lake Garda, Italy.


When we arrived at the designated pack up area I thought it had a good feel to it. 

I was surrounded by willing helpers including obliging terminal staff, it was not raining, it was not even windy, the sun shone and the temp mild, just about perfect for our work. 

Subsequently, things mostly fell into place, two containers with 12 and 3 boats respectively. Something like 17 masts, 3 spare trolleys, 15 sets of wings,heaps of misc stuff and a system that worked pretty much like clockwork. All done in just over 5 hours!
