ATN Inc. Teams Up With Abilyn Racing

We are excited to announce that ATN, Inc. will be teaming up with Abilyn Racing on its ocean racing campaign.  Based in Hollywood, Florida, ATN develops innovative sailing equipment to meet the demands of both the racing and cruising sailor.  Abilyn Racing will be carrying an ATN Mastclimber, which has been used by Vendee Globe racers and offers a safe and easy solution for the single-handed sailor to climb his/her mast with a bosun's chair or mast harness, and work above the mast head.    

ATN was founded in 1985 by Etienne Giroire after 15 years of extensive racing, delivering, and skippering maxi boats.  Since then, many of ATN's innovations have been used by offshore sailors all over the globe.  Etienne himself has had a distinguished career as an ocean racer, having participated in such regattas as the Transat Quebec-Saint-Malo, Whitbread Around the World Race, and Route du Rhum; and having sailed with notable figures such as Bruno Peyron and Mike Birch.
