The just installed new textile forestay completes the 2019 intervention, which included the construction and installation of the entire textile rigging made of continuous PBO-Zylon multifilament. Way of Life will compete at the highest level in the next international events. The cable is entirely designed by the internal Technical Department and built in the Armare Ropes plant in San Giorgio di Nogaro. It is designed to achieve extreme performance, with a Breaking Load over 50 tons. The forestay ensures approx 30% less weight than a more traditional Nitronic 50 solution. The construction of the standing rigging and forestay of Way of Life, recently re-stepped, was possible thanks to the collaboration with Daniele Augusti – Wave Professional Sailing Equipment.
