The sail loft is very much back to normal working.  On-the-water activity was understandably frustrated in the early part of  last summer and we had to pause some of the exciting development work under way at Batt Sails.

We pressed on behind closed doors with digital evaluation, programming and patterning  projects etc,

Since then we’re pleased to be right back on track with sail production and development.  Our popular SailCare service has also never been busier

Check out these examples of the current work-in-progress.

An exciting project.  Just before sailing was restricted at the start of the European season we grabbed a chance to see the all-new Batt Sails 420 spinnaker put through its paces at a Warsash Sailing Club training weekend. All the signs are really good, with valuable feedback from the session  and regular use since then. A second prototype is in Santa Cruz for more proving with the US team. What a shame the World Championships in Italy had to be cancelled at the last minute.



The El Toro class is not well-known in Europe. It is a mainstay of youth sailing in many  regions of the United States and almost identical to Australia’s ubiquitous Sabot. Here is Kyra Phelan testing the latest ‘Batt’ sail for the El Toro in Santa Cruz.

Over the years Batt Sails have forged an enviable reputation in single-handers, including Optimist, OK Dinghy, British Moth, Solo, International Canoe and Contender. It’s been a real pleasure bringing this experience to bear so successfully in another keenly contested class.

The usual strong contingent of GBR International 14s enjoyed a tough week at the most recent World, hosted in Perth.

The latest Ovington project produced the new World Champion boat and here’s Andy Fitzgerald putting the developed Batt Sails / C-Tek rig through its paces during a gruelling week’s sailing in fantastic condititons. The new rig is now well-proven, the chief areas of continuing interest are fine-tuning the sail profiles and some ground-breaking spinnaker constructions.
