Celebrating our 60th Anniversary!
60 years of high quality sail-making. That's a whole lot of sails!
And it all started in 1954 with our sailing hero, the iconic Paul Elvstrøm. An enterprising and innovative man with one primary passion - sailing; and an amazing inspiration to thousands of sailors worldwide!
When Roz and Alan King bought their Hylas 46 ‘Musetta’, for a round the world trip, they wanted the best, trouble-free sails and personal help with sail trials.
As part of a two year build up, the King's have been progressively building the correct sail wardrobe for their trip.
With all the headsails sorted, successful sail trials have just taken place with the new asymmetric chute. Musetta took off... read full story...

Birthday 'chute' proves a hit!
Earlier this year Chris and Lin Wilson purchased a new furling genoa from us which he says 'totally changed' the performance of his Dufour 36. Cut from top quality Dacron, Chris realised paying that little extra he has 'a sail to be proud of', that is quick too.
Chris's son, Jamie a successful business man, decided that he wanted to buy his father a cruising chute as a birthday surprise. As his parents normally sail as a couple, the chute had to be easy to use, so we supplied a 'black box snuffer' for full control.
Chris tells us that he is over whelmed with the chute and it is 'way beyond his expectations. The sail is so stable I can use the autohelm and walk around the boat!'
Also, that they have removed one sheet, so when they gybe they pull down the snuffer, gybe, re-reave the sheet on the new side and re-hoist the snuffer. He says they have found this the simplest way to gybe and it keeps Lin happy as she was a little nervous at first about using a cruising chute. Now she is more than happy with doubling their down wind speed!
We wish Chris and Lin happy sailing as they head off to the West Country and over to France.
