We work hard to make our Swallow sails fast, attractive and increasingly good value for money. We have a long, successful track record in keelboats and our close association with the Itchenor Swallow fleet has resulted in an adaptable and exceptionally user-friendly rig.

Following three successful seasons with the new rig configuration we revisited our winning designs last winter to give more mid-wind power without losing their valuable all-weather capability. The resulting rig is faster and easier to use.

The mainsail is cut loose-footed to take advantage of the latest rules. The luff can easily be configured to accomodate a ‘Gnav’ kicker system.

Spinnaker shapes have evolved to the current design which features a small radial head section to engineer the head loadings. This sail is as close as possible to maximum width but is nicely configured to take full advantage of the new, longer spinnaker pole, delivering great performance through the wind range.

Please contact us if you wish to discuss any aspect of the design, specification or tuning.
