Tech Talk

Paul Lees
You name it, these sails have done it. With some real celebrities – Lin and Larry Pardey in their famous cutter Serraffyn of Victoria (see “Serraffyn’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.
