Mainsails are cut from Marblehead 677 premium Dacron and have a ‘single line of reefs’ fitted as standard. Additional slab reefs are optional.

Jibs  are in Marblehead 577 dacron, which has winning track record for fast, long-lasting sails.

Our stunning starcut spinnaker is offered with a special price for single colour. Bonded seams are snag-proof and air-tight.

Up to December 31st 2020 the UK VAT rate applies to all Squib sails.

Carriage is charged simply  ‘at cost’ to us.
