Sandhopper sails from the Batt sail loft are fast and beautifully made to the highest standards from the finest materials.


Yorkshire One Design
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.

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.

This top-grade fabric weighs-in comfortably above the class minimum and has a vastly superior weave to its predecessiors.

Materials and finishing detail are subject to similar measures to maintain the Class’s One-Design objectives.

Mainsails and jibs can be supplied in light blue or white Polykote race dacron.

  • Radial reinforcement
  • Race numbers
