Elvstrøm Sails UK
Two new UK Agent
We are delighted to announce two new UK Dealers joining our expanding network. Downer Sails in Dun Laoghaire have been manufacturing and repairing sails for over 55 years, and are expanding their portfolio through now offering top end Elvstrom Sails for cruising and racing. Boatwork Ltd, based in Chesterfield, was established in 2012 to assist owners, boatyards and water sport centres with management, maintenance and repair, and specialise in taking their services to the client. Being able to offer new sails is a logical extension to their rigging and deck services.
Elvstrom’s professional winter sail service will prolong the life of your sails. Plus, it will get you afloat faster next season, and avoid missing valuable sailing hours.
Your sails are your next most important asset after your hull - but too often we forget those sails packed away in their bags, whilst worrying about fairing and anti-foul.
A good sail service is important to check for essential repairs and for damage prevention. There’s nothing more true than catching that ‘stitch in time’ to ensure you avoid any mid-season issues float next year!
Our winterisation sail services include:
• Full inspection and repairs
• Alterations and replacement UV strips etc
• Laundering and sail storage
• Sail removal and home pick up service available.
• Silicone coating for spinnakers
• Repairs and re-proofing of sprayhoods and covers
Elvstrom’s highly experienced sail makers start each sail service with a thorough inspection. Checks include batten pockets, sliders and slugs, bolt ropes, webbings, and reinforcement panels broken or pulled stitching, as well as holes or signs of abrasion. We can replace windows, luff and leach tapes, leach lines and tell-tales too. If you have time, bring your sails into our busy Loft and check them over with our skilled Staff.
Washing your sails is advisable to remove harmful salt crystals, stains and other pollutants that can enhance degradation if left unclean, and prevent discolouration. If there is a lot of work involved we will advise you immediately before work commences.
Foul Weather Clothing reproofing!
