Latest news from Barton customers John and Alex is that their Hallberg Rassy ‘Free Spirit' is now safely ashore in Grenada for the duration of the hurricane season. They certainly had a busy Christmas and New Year taking in Martinique and Dominica. They then headed west to the BVI's and proved that you can cruise this popular area without it costing a fortune! March and April is the best time of year for the Caribbean and with this in mind they headed south on the easterly trades taking in Mustique, Mayreau, Canouan and the Tobago Cays before heading south to Grenada ready for their haul out.
John commented: "Free Spirit is equipped with Barton's Size 7 triple block mainsheet system, Size 5 fiddle block mizzen sheet system, Size 5 fiddle block kicker system, Size 4 triple blocks for man over-board pulley, medium snatch blocks for spinnaker/cruising chute, medium snatch blocks for the boom preventer, lazy jacks for mainsail and mizzen, new DO 550 rope clutches, pad eyes for safety clips, winch for genoa furling line and mast steps for the mizzen mast. All in all, the voyage is a great test of the long term capabilities of your products, we have travelled 10,000 miles so far."
