Harvest Moon Regatta Victory

What started out as a fast sleigh ride down the coast from Galveston to Port Arkansas, Texas in 15-20kts winds finished with a norther blowing 35-42kts and 10-12ft seas. A blown mainsail tells the tale; this mainsail had been ridden hard over the years and has now been replaced with a new main from Precision Sails.

Pender Island Beach Cleanup

The Precision Sails’ team cleans up Pender Island’s beaches during our staff retreat.Our team spent the day cleaning up local beaches on Pender Island, making a competition out of it. The first team to fill a few garbage bags with trash would win a prize. After breaking into three teams each headed to a different beach. The amount of trash pulled from local beaches was astonishing, and some of the items were so large they had to be broken up to haul them out. Take a look and see how much stuff we were able to pull off the beach!
