A full range of sailing winches meeting expectations of racers but also blue-water cruisers and families who can enjoy the power developed to grind without forcing!

The KSW is an innovative 4-speed automatic winch and very (very) performance-oriented: 2 speeds identical to other winches on the market and 2 additional ultra-fast speeds.

At the maneuver, the difference is just incredible: the rope is grinded 6 times faster than a winch of similar size. Many sailors have already adopted and gain distance at each maneuver: hosting sails, gybing, tacking, ... These manual winches are so fast that it is no longer necessary to take the slack of the rope. The maneuvers are safe and fast, flap in the sail is diminished, the boat loses less speed, 6 times faster = 6 times less turn to give. The KSW is simply the fastest winch on the market!

The KPW is an innovative 4-speed automatic winch and very (very) performance oriented: 2 speeds identical to other winches on the market and 2 extra speeds extremely powerful ... 3 times more powerful than any other winch on the market. For example, the KPW110 has the same dimensions as a winch of 40 (base 170 mm) but the power of a winch 2 to 3 times bigger. But what will you do with so much power? The answer is easy: 3 times more power also means 3 times less effort to pull a similar load. In other words, the KPW simply makes navigation a lot less physical and more enjoyable. The KPW is so powerful that it becomes a real alternative to electric winches. The sea becomes accessible to all.

The KCW is an ultra-compact 2-speed winch for sailboats up to 40 feet (12 meters). It is the only winch on the market to offer both a very fast speed (1st speed) and a very powerful speed (2nd speed). Hosting a Main Sail or a tacking will seem particularly easy! It replaces any winch up to size 40. It is more than time to switch for a Compact!

The KCW45 is nominated for the innovation & design award DAME AWARDS 2019 (International marine equipments trade show / Amsterdam)

Bainbridge sailcloth onboard with Warrior Sailing program

Bainbridge is proud to be associated with the Warrior Sailing program for their 2019 campaign. This program gets wounded/injured veterans out on the water sailing.  Bainbridge first came across this program at the Atlantic Cup in 2016, and discovered immediately what a great group of people they are, working collectively for a great cause – you could see the difference in the vets from the time they first arrived at the dock to when they came back from a sail.

They needed some help in building new sails for the boat and they approached our company asking if we could help in any way or guide them.  After discussions from our management team, Bainbridge donated AIRX cloth for them to make a spinnaker, and supplied HMT laminates to build a mainsail.

CEO Mike Cuscia said “This is a great program trying to help those who were injured by putting themselves in harm’s way for us and our country. It is an honor to be associated with such a program and such people.”

Please take a few minutes to watch the video below. Thank you all for your passion for Bainbridge and for Sailing and Boating.
