US Sailing announced today a new partnership with New England Ropes as the Official Rope Partner. Located in Fall River, Massachusetts, New England Ropes is part of the TEUFELBERGER Group, an Austrian family-owned and operated rope manufacturer.

New England Ropes has over 50 years of manufacturing experience and has the largest portfolio of marine ropes worldwide. Trusted and tested since 1967, their ropes are engineered to meet the needs of boaters. New England Ropes is committed to producing the highest quality products capable of withstanding the most severe conditions - from Olympic endeavors to cruising enthusiasts.

"In Olympic Sailing we push our boats to the extremes," said US Sailing Team Nacra 17 Athlete, David Liebenberg. "We rely on our gear and spend hours optimizing all of our systems. I'm thrilled we're partnering with New England Ropes to help supply us with their existing lineup of high-performance ropes and to help develop the next generation of running rigging."

"As a leading US manufacturer, we are looking forward to supporting and collaborating with US Sailing and the US Sailing Team," said Peter Phelan, New England Ropes Marketing Manager. "This partnership will ensure the US Sailing athletes are outfitted with the highest quality performance lines as the team works their way to the 2024 Olympic Games and beyond."

New England Ropes research and development teams will work with the US Sailing Team to make sure the athletes have access to their team of engineers to support the development of the specific cordage needs and athlete preferences within each Olympic class discipline. New England Ropes will be a key pillar in the team's pathway towards performance excellence.
