Testimonial from the Havasu Pocket Cruiser Convention

One of our custom sails was out at the  Havasu Pocket Cruiser Convention.  See what one of our valued customers had to say about the performance:

“Just got back from the annual Havasu Pocket Cruiser Convention . I had my Montgomery 17 CornDog down there this year and had a lot of fun. Did quite well in the races, taking first in the Montgomery cup and fourth overall in the Long Distance race out of nearly 100 boats. Your sails performed superbly, as always.

I hope business is good and all is well for you and Mary.

Another custom sail has a great performance

We got a great thank you letter from  Durkee Richards and his crew.  They raced using  our custom sails

“Hello Don

We enjoyed a spirited race in Sequim Bay yesterday.  The southerly pressure gradient generated a fresh southerly in the bay — 10 to 20 knots.  As Chris Allen put it “Team Geritol had a fine race”.  We finished just a few minutes behind the Big Dogs and well out in the lead for the B-fleet.

I have finally remembered to send you a copy of the picture of the crew with the trophy for the Reach For Hospice Regatta that appeared in the clubs Scuttlebutt.

Cheers, Durkee”

Custom G-spinn sails are made in the USA

With such a push to overseas manufacturing in the last 10 years, people are often in disbelief when we tell them that we make our own sails right here in Washington state.  We decided to take some photos and do a video of our owner Don Yager sewing, and a video of our computerized cutter at work.  We are more than happy to give tours of our facilities upon request.

We put the extra personal attention to each one of our custom sails, which is what helps to make them some of the best asymmetrical spinnaker sails in the world.
