Thank you again for your timely effort in delivering me top quality sails. Rest assured I will recommend you to anyone needing new sails."Gary Gould, singlehanded circumnavigator
The best part about our business is the friends we make. We have met so many incredible people thanks to our business. From time to time we like to profile one of the people that we got to know in the course of supplying a sail.
John and Gail are friends, dock neighbors, and customers. John skippered his Nordic 44, Music, to a second place finish in the 2008 Pacific Cup, and won the team trophy. We supplied two new spinnakers for the race. In the early going Music exceeded 16 knots with our reacher. We have helped other Pac Cup boats achieve great results.
When we found out that singlehander Nick Jaffe was in need of a new genoa to complete his voyage from Europe to Australia we built and shipped him a new sail in under two weeks. Nick has a great website at www.bigoceans.com where you can learn more about this intrepid young sailor in a Contessa 26.
Doug and Carla are also friends, dock neighbors, and customers. We miss their company. They left Alameda as part of the 2008 Baja Ha-Ha and are enjoying themselves immensely. We built the spinnaker you see here as well as a furling self tacking staysail. Doug and Carla's Tayana 42 is named Moondance and you can follow their adventure at Following Moondance Blog
Steve owns a Catalina 38 and intitially purchased a Custom Axis Laminate (CAL) mainsail and genoa from us several years ago. Once his sails arrived he was so delighted he ordered a spinnaker. But Steve didn't stop there. We've almost lost count of how many sails we've sent to Steve. The highlight of our relationship with Steve was when we met up with him in San Francisco Bay and hired sailing photographer Tom Zinn for a photo session with Peregrine.

KP is a good friend that we have known for many years. Early in his sailing career KP sailed a Cal 20 from San Francisco to Hawaii. Since semi-retiring in 2001 KP has sailed his vintage Beneteau First 38, Chalupa, from San Francisco to Australia, and then to Southeast Asia where he has been based for several years. KP has a website where you can find a link to a story that appeared in Cruising World detailing his crossing to Hawaii in his Cal 20. KP Chin website
