You name it, these sails have done it. With some real celebrities – Lin and Larry Pardey in their famous cutter Seraffyn of Victoria (see “Seraffyn’s European Adventure”), Round Britain with Ellen MacArthur, circumnavigating the Arctic Circle with Jeffrey Allison, around the world with Gipsy Moth IV, through the Northwest Passage with Les and Ali Parsons, ocean passages and circumnavigations too numerous to list here.

  After a slow start to the season we have finally managed to start using the new genoa you made for us over the winter.  Combined with the new main sail you made for us two years ago our old Sun Fizz really flies!  So thank you for a fabulous job, again.

  Hi Andy, Just a quick email to thank you for the sails which arrived with us last week. They’ve had a bit of a baptism of fire as we’ve been beating westwards from Plymouth - currently in Newlyn waiting for the sea to die off a bit before we head for the Scillies. The working jib in particular has been fantastic in all weathers so far and sets beautifully, but everything we have put up so far has been great too. Will definitely be in touch in the future should we need to replace our existing sails. Thanks also to Paul, Vicky and (I think) Matt who sorted out the payment, delivery etc speedily and efficiently. All the best. Most of my photos of the new sails are totally rubbish I’m afraid but I thought you might like this one - (old) crusader main and (new) crusader working jib working well together on the Firth of Clyde a couple of days ago! Cheers.
