VersaDock plays its part at America’s Cup World Series
Marsol International, the Dubai based distributor of VersaDock, installed a VersaDock floating pontoon for the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series which was held in Muscat Oman last week (27-29 February 2016). The installation was in support of a local Omani Company for the prominent world class event.
The Sultanate of Oman created a rare slice of sporting history as it becomes the first country in the Middle East to host America’s Cup racing by staging the event.
Marsol personnel assembled the VersaDock full-float blocks onsite to form a floating pontoon, which now serves as a temporary platform providing access from the yachts to a normally inaccessible quayside.
The event went on to be won by the UK’s own Ben Ainslie and his Landrover BAR Racing Team, increasing the hopes of the UK of an America’s Cup win in the main event.
