In 1869 one of the world’s finest ships was launched in Scotland. The Cutty Sark was built to ply the oceans with tea, a precious commodity for the London set, at a time when the first tea to arrive in London from each harvest in India commanded the highest price. Her main mast stood majestically 130 feet into the sky and she carried up to 32,000 square feet of sail. But her life as a tea clipper was short-lived; the Suez canal had opened making a short cut for trade with the East.

After a few depressing years the Cutty Sark again found a challenging market, this time the transport of wool from Australia to England. The race was on again. For 10 consecutive years she was the fastest ship on a route that took her high into the southern latitudes to catch the most favourable winds. Her best recorded day was 363 nautical miles, in one 6-day period she sailed almost 2,200 miles, her best trip was an incredible 72 days, and all this via Cape Horn. At speeds of over 17 knots she even overtook the finest steamships of the era. This was extreme sailing at its best with men up the masts with the canvas flogging, fighting to reduce sail when the boat was heeling 40 degrees and the sailors on watch were keeping their eyes open for icebergs; the relentless ocean was crashing over her decks and hopefully her cargo of thousands of bails of wool was not shifting. This was the era before weather maps, GPS and radar, when the men fought for their lives every minute.

But there were the calms too; day after day with the sails hanging limp from their yards with no air to fill them. Of course this was a time to repair torn sails and broken spars but also a time to do the decorative and intricate ropework: the splicing and whipping, making mats and lanyards, using the needle and palm; worming, parceling and serving - making the ship one to be proud of as well as safe. Sinox Ocean is on a mission too: to provide strong, stainless steel and titanium fittings worthy of today’s yachts in these same extreme conditions, whether they be the hi-tech, round-the-world racer or the week-ender caught out in a blow.

And in the same spirit as those days over 100 years ago Sinox Ocean is very conscious of the beauty of the ship and her parts; making a ship that her owner and crew are proud of. Sinox Ocean has designers at their drawing boards for weeks on end to make each and every item aesthetic as well as functional, easy to work with and, above all, reliable and strong enough to be trusted. After all, nothing strong enough will ever break.
