‘Batt’ Squib sails are fast, attractive and increasingly good value for money.
Every Batt Squib sail is manufactured to the tightest tolerances, replicating the current Championship winning designs
Our superb crosscut spinnaker is ever more popular. The current UK National Champion and runner-up both used this sail to great effect although last year the Irish Nationals were won with the vertical option. Both sails are very close to the Class maximum in size and the vertical cut still has devotees throughout the fleet.
All Squib sails from Batt Sails are delivered measured and RYA certified, ready to race.
The latest winning designs. Includes windows, crosscut or vertical cut spinnaker, all battens, numbers, telltails etc and lightweight sleeve bags.
As ever, Batt sails continue to win on a regular basis on both sides of the Irish sea. Batt sails have been used to win all but two of the past seventeen UK Squib National Championships. A remarkable record.
2017 Squib success
Sailing “Ric’O’Shea” Josh Metcalf and Mark Hogan won the 2017 UK National Squib championships from Dick Batt and Pam Phelan in “Squib”, the first production Squib ever made. They tied equal on 14 points, well clear of the fleet with the tie being broken in “Ric’O’Shea’s favour.
Previous champions Alan Johnson and Dave Garlick in “Cariad Bach” finished in a comfortable fourth place overall and these three Squibs used Batt Sails exclusively.
Ric’O’Shea has now won ten UK Squib titles with Batt sails, while Alan Johnson and Dick Batt have each taken the title twice.
2016 Squib success
Congratulations to Cian and Finbar O’Regan on their fine victory in the 2016 Squib Irish Nationals. Perfect conditions met the 20-strong fleet for this postponed event, with local boat ‘Fagin’ running out a clear winner on points. Colm Dunne and Fiona Ward won the South Coast champs at Glandore in ‘Allegro’. Even more recently Sam Lyness and Erk Hayes, sailing “The Worm” won the 2016 season-closing Inlands in Dromineer, with Gordon Pattison and Ross Nolan as very close runners-up in QuickstepIII, both boats using Batt sails
Earlier in the summer Squib 139, ‘Inshallah’, took David Eccles and Phill Hutchison to the 2016 N.I. Squib title in Killyleagh. This Batt Sails-sponsored event was largely a light-wind affair. This made it a clean sweep for Batt sails in the key Irish events last year.
Congratulations also to Alan Johnson and Dave Garlick for a fine performance at the 2016 UK Squib Nationals in Weymouth, adding a second overall to an enviable record which includes several UK Squib National Championships titles.
As ever, Batt sails continue to win on a regular basis on both sides of the Irish Sea. ‘Batt’ sails have been used to win all but two of the past seventeen UK Squib National Championships. An exceptional record by any standard.
