‘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 use 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 rounded off a great season by winning the 2017 Squib UK Inland Championships on Rutland Water. Three races in wild conditions on the Saturday were followed by light, more variable winds for Sunday’s two races.
Team “Ric’O’Shea” also 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.
In Ireland Batt sails finished 2nd and 3rd in the Irish nationals in Killylleagh, Vincent Delany took the East Coast area event in Dun Laoghaire and the South Coast championships fell to Dick Batt and Pam Phelan in ‘Squib’. To cap it all Colm Dunne and Fiona Ward took the Inland Championships in Dromineer at the season’s end.
