Maiden’s bid to lap the world once more

The iconic Maiden with her all-female crew is taking part in the Ocean Globe Race which started on 10th September from Southampton, UK. The yacht, which found fame after completing the 1989/90 Whitbread Round the World Race, was treated to a thorough rig overhaul by Marine Results, which has taken care of her rig since she was completely refitted in 2020 ready for her new global campaign. The mast was removed and rod rigging and high load fittings inspected using our dye penetrant method, plus an ultrasound inspection of mast and spreaders. We also supplied a new boom and spinnaker pole, then reinstalled and trialled the rig. The Maiden crew worked alongside us picking up tips for carrying out ropework maintenance while at sea. Marine Results also helped with repairs of the mast of another Ocean Globe Race competitor, the Australian Baltic 55 Outlaw, in preparation for the race.
