Forespar Products is celebrating its 50th anniversary and is preparing events throughout the year to mark the milestone.

Robert Foresman founded Forespar in April 1966 when he introduced a telescoping whisker pole designed on his dining room table and manufactured in his garage.

The company now offers hundreds of sailing and powerboat products worldwide.

Led by president and COO Scott Foresman, Forespar manufactures 95 percent of its products at company headquarters in Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif.

“This fantastic journey would not have been possible without the support of our many industry friends and loyal customers,” Foresman said in a statement. “We look forward to a bright future and a long, rewarding relationship with each of one of you in the coming years.”

The company starts its celebration with a cocktail party, rum tasting and champagne toast in its booth at Strictly Sail Pacific from 6 to 8 p.m. on April 8.
