Morges, January 19th, 2015, for immediate release.

Gréement Courant S.A. – Running Rigging – Is growing!

The company Greement Courant SA (French for « Running Rigging), founded by Louis Heckly and Bill Leclerc in 2007, developer of the Nub®, specialised in the preparation, optimisation and racing boat performance,  is increasing its team with the arrival of Wil Wargnier in its ranks. The intent is to enhance its development on a local and international level.

With a soaring demand over the past years, in conjunction with the launch of the Nub®– a revolutionary friction block – Greement Courant is now compelled to staff-up. Wil will primarily be the point of contact for the Nub®, until taking responsibility for the rigging & splicing unit in the Geneva Lake region.

Wil Wargnier, 36, married, 2 children.

With a business background, Wil held a number of roles in the sailing industry. He was in charge of sail making at North Sails Switzerland, responsible for the importation of Foiling Moths in Switzerland, commercial manager for ‘classic yachts’ sail making for Elvström-Sobstat, shore team manager for Donna Bertarelli’s D35 ‘Lady Cat’. He is also a great racing team member with impressive results.


Bill Leclerc, co-founder of Greement Courant SA:

-“With the launch of the Nub® this year, we needed someone competent in order to maintain the same level of qualitative servicing to our clients. Therefore, it is quite naturally that we reached out to Wil, who beyond the fact of being a weathered player in the sailing environment, has also a robust knowledge of the Swiss market. He has also been a friend and crew mate for the past 30 years!”

Wil Wargnier:

-“I was touched by the offer that Louis and Bill made. Both joining and bringing my contribution to a company with such a great reputation is a challenge that I am thrilled to take on. I will have to adapt, however I am not worried as the Nub® is a great product” – He says.

Wil will maintain his commercial role at Elvström-Sobstat in the French speaking part of Switzerland and will keep managing PRs for the Stars Sailors League.
