Francois Hebert works as the General Manager and head coach at the Whistler Sailing School. He recently went through the process of ordering sails from Precision Sails for his Corsair F27 R trimaran, “Trioomph”. Trioomph’s mainsail and furling jib were made using Warp Drive sailcloth from our Precision Tri-Radial Series.
When we purchased our J 40 she came with several Dacron sails in ‘good’ condition. After a few months of racing it was apparent we had exceeded both their performance and life expectancy. My wife and I contacted several local, commonly known sailmakers who were unresponsive or very non-customer service focused
I got my sailboat, Gudgeon, on a whim. I’d heard you could live on a sailboat and so I bought the first one I set foot on, a rather tired Cherubini designed Hunter 36. Built in 1980, she was older than I was and though kinda overbuilt as was common for the era.
Precision Sails believes in supporting its community and so when the opportunity to support the Sooke Sailing Association came up we jumped at the chance. We were able to donate three Opti sails to this wonderful organization, helping youth develop and advance their sailing skills. This blog provides images of the 3 Jr Opti sails donated to Sooke Sailing Association.
I have had a Tanzer 26 for over 20 years now. The vessel, without much imagination I call The Boat, has served me well and without complaint through yearly cruises on Lake Ontario with my three kids and day sailing with the wife. Did I mention that my wife is a good sport but a definitive lover of a good.
My Need for Cruising Speed Demands a Great Suit of SailsI like to sail fast mostly in the heavy winds that Lake Ontario throws.
