10 Years of Sailing Chandlery

This month marks the 10th anniversary of starting what was then Dinghy Rope.

Back in 2012 a chap called John from Middlesex bought a spool of Marlow No 4 Whipping Twine from us on Ebay which started the business with our first sale.

Originally named Dinghy Rope we rebranded to Sailing Chandlery in 2018. The new name better explained what we did and allowed for us to continue to grow our stock into other areas away from just rope. 

It all started with one order from Marlow Ropes, a few reels and some popular accessories.

One Mission

There has always been one key mission behind the business which remains true today, to get your sailing kit to you quickly. I originally founded the business out of frustration for ordering items on a Sunday and them not being delivered ahead of the next weekend to go sailing. We want to see you back on the water doing what you love quickly.

Our promise to you:

  • We ship your items quickly
  • We use fast delivery services
  • We provide you with accurate stock levels
  • We provide excellent service

Over The Years

  • Over 50 sponsored sailors
  • Hundreds of sponsored events
  • 4 RYA Dinghy Shows
  • 3 Homes for the business
  • Over 50,000 orders dispatched
  • Hundreds of boats delivered
  • 2,531 5 star reviews through TrustPilot so far

Thank You

A huge thank you to the thousands of customers who have supported us to date. We take great pride in handling your orders and getting them out the door daily.
