Who is the instructor?

 

Jan-Willem Polman 

founder of Premium Ropes.

 

My name is Jan-Willem Polman sailor and mechanical engineer specialised in synthetics technology. From 2008 to 2010 I sailed around the world my wife two young children. In the past 10 years I’ve spliced ropes for many yachts and I'm organising workshops and courses about splicing modern ropes. Especially for ropes splicing I developed the D-Splicer needles that are used widely by sailors and riggers.

Dozens of happy sailors, and counting!

 

I have experimented a lot with ropes on my dinghy and splices are very helpful, light and safe. Especially for modern ropes made from Dyneema. The workshop gave me the instructions how to splice ropes and use this on board. 

All ropes on board are a lot better now. The numerous practical tips given by Jan-Willem and the other trainers were extremely helpful.

After the webinars of Premium Ropes last spring, I had many new ideas for organizing things on deck. 

I learned how to splice. Which eliminated the need for those less attractive and weaker knots. Also I fastened my Low Friction Rings perfectly with continuous loops of Dyneema. 

This workshop is highly recommended. The pace and method of instruction is very nice!

The webinars are hands-on and allow you to learn important splices within the course of a few hours. You'll you get instantaneous feedback on your own splices. A well-spent evening for any boat owner! 

 

Highly recommend!

What are the possibilities if club events can no longer be organized due to the Coronavirus? The board of the X-Yachts Club Nederland went looking for digital events and ended up with Premium Ropes.

Together we organized an interactive workshop. In these webinars members could learn how to splice modern ropes from home. After a short explanation of the various lines and their applications, we started splicing. 

Due to Jan-Willem’s patience, everyone eventually managed to make the splits and knots and proudly display them. In short, a fun and educational workshop, where we could also meet again (digitally).
