Harken puts innovation at the forefront at the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show 2017


Harken puts innovation at the forefront at the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show 2017

From the first ball-bearing blocks developed by Peter and Olaf Harken in 1967 to the latest high-performance solutions, Harken have been at the front of sailboat hardware development. 2017 marks 50 years at the cutting edge and Harken will showcase some of the latest innovations in sailboat hardware with a real America's Cup grinders pedestal and ultra-advanced air winch.

Following the theme of innovation; the brand new hotly-anticipated F101 foiling trimaran will be making its first appearance on the Harken stand. The F101 has been designed to make foiling accessible to the average club racer.

To celebrate their 50th birthday and the launch of the F101, Harken UK have teamed up Foiling World, the brains behind the F101, to launch a competition to win the chance to learn to foil. One lucky winner and a friend will bag an unforgettable 2-day Learn-to-Fly experience with Pro-Vela in the warm waters of foiling paradise Mar Menor, Spain. Two runners up will receive Harken goodies. The competition will be launched at the dinghy show and will run until midnight on 30th April. Entry will be available at the show and online via Facebook and Yachtsandyachting.com. Harken are offering a limited edition 50th water bottle to everyone who signs up at the show.

Also being launched at the show are the new Little Hawk Race Podium Edition wind indicators. Developed with the world's top sailors, this latest wind indicator offers a redesigned vane arm for greater accuracy and reduced sheet-snag.

Please note - Harken will not be retailing at the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show 2017. Exhibitors retailing Harken products, McLube, FSE, Hawk and Clamcleat at the show include Jimmy Green Marine, P&B and Dinghy Rope
