Congratulations to Groupama, Volvo 2011-2012 Winners!

Team RBS would like to congratulate all of the teams in the 2011-2012 Volvo Ocean Race!

You can relive the race, leg by leg HERE.
We have worked closely with designers for many of the teams, including  winners, Groupama.  Nathan Quirk from Groupama emailed us after their victory to let us know:


“Not a single broken RBS batten in 40,000 miles was a big help too. Many thanks from the Groupama Sailors and Sailmakers for that!

Regards, Nathan”

Thank you Nathan and the whole of the Groupama team.

The Volvo Ocean Race is one of the toughest tests on any component in the sailing world.  We at RBS see it as the prime testing ground for our battens.  If they can survive the grueling tests put forth in the Volvo Ocean Race, we feel they can survive anything we can throw at them and thank the teams who’ve chosen to use RBS Battens.

Congratulations to all!

Cheers, Team RBS
