retains all the files from the Burke loft, as well as sail patterns and designs.Many long standing customers, have simply phoned to order a new sail, and if the boat configuration hasn't changed, he
is able to build the sail from the records and / or computer files.
Ben's sails have had much success in local club racing; both dinghy and yacht classes.Ben
himself currently sails in the 12 foot skiff class.Members of the Sharpie Association
were very impressed with the trial spinnaker he
made to comply with their increased size rule.
Also, many customers are asking Ben
to convert their headsails to suit Roller Furling and fit the LazyPack which allows the main to drop down into its cover, which is then simply zipped up. Ben
is upstairs at the Woolwich Marina sail loft, 2c Margaret Street Woolwich, 2110
