We recently addressed jib design with a vengeance and matched this to great effect with a subtly-revised mainsail. The results speak for themselves.
Our superb crosscut spinnaker is ever more popular, although this 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 sixteen UK Squib National Championships. A remarkable record.
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 season-closing Inlands in Dromineer, with Gordon Pattison and Ross Nolan as very close runners-up in QuickstepIII.
Earlier this 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 this 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 sixteen UK Squib National Championships. An exceptional record by any standard.
