Sandhopper sails from the Batt sail loft are fast and beautifully made to the highest standards from the finest materials.
All our sail making is kept in-house and in the UK for the closest control of quality and consistency and the smallest carbon footprint. The current Sandhopper sails were all designed on our 3D CAD system and are computer cut for enduring precision and repeatability.
a) BLUE SAILS;The latest 210 g.s.m. RSQ Polykote Dacron is an outstanding choice of fabric. High tenacity yarns in an attractive and robust ripstop frame weave and the proven polykote finish that has for many years been the enduring preference in top One-Design keelboat fleets including the Dragons, Etchells, J24s and XODs.
b) WHITE SAILS: Contender PK552 Dacron has a superb structural weave that accentuates leech support and promotes adjustability. It is widely accepted as one of the predominant premium fabrics for OneDesign keelboats with a successful track record established over decades, not seasons.
These top-grade fabrics weighs-in comfortably above the class minimum.
The go-to spinnaker fabric is Superkote 75. This peerless ripstop spinnaker nylon is available in a superb range of colours and is perfect for our unique bonded, snag-free, air-tight construction. See the colours here http://www.battsails.com/index.php/spinnaker-colours/
