By | All News, Marine News | No Comments

CST has once been locked in as the major naming rights sponsor of the 2009 Moth World Championships. The event will be contested from August 8 – 14 in Cascade Locks, Oregon, USA, with a strong fleet of around 80 boats expected.

This will include a talented team of CST sailors all using the same technology that produced the 2008 World Champion mast and boom.

“After the success of 2008 CST Composites Moth World Championship, we are glad to announce the continuation of our partnership with the class through sponsorship of the 2009 event. TheGorge in USA should be a fantastic venue for this technology leading class.

Just like the Moths, we pride ourselves on innovation and development, to make products that are market leaders in the Yachting sector. One of these products is CST Nano Spars (TM), new technology that will see manufacturing of lighter, stiffer and smaller diameter spars,” said CST’s Managing Director, Clive Watts.

With raising popularity of our filament wound yacht sections, CST has just received a number of orders for large yacht masts and booms.

Some of these include Beneteau 42s7, which uses our 191 D Elliptical section.

Filament winding is an ideal process for the manufacture of thick walled heavy tubing as it delivers seamless tubes with excellent strength, stiffness and toughness.  By using a computer controlled automated process minimal labour input is required, thus keeping costs low. With the correct set-up high output rates are also achievable
