Sail Repairs and Alterations

We take care in the quality of our repairs and are conscious that your sails sometimes need a quick turn around. Being sailors ourselves we are aware of the importance of the sails/kites etc performing and looking correct - even if they have been repaired or altered.

We have laminates, woven cloths and rip stop materials to match your sail's technologies and colour schemes as closely as possible for a near invisible repair.

We also work closely with insurance companies and can liaise with them on your behalf getting you back on the water with minimal fuss.

The FULL Sail Service - Laundering and a Complete Check Over!! We can store your sail for the winter and return it to you in the spring laundered, fully serviced and ready to go, good as new!

  • Laundering your sails removes salt and stains from the sail prolonging its overall life span. 
  • Regular servicing of your sails will help catch the small problems before they become big problems.
  • We will lay out the sail and inspect it for any signs of wear or damage.

Items on the checklist include:

  • Bolt rope inspection - wear on the bolt rope and surrounding cloth 
  • Threads and seams - re-stitching worn seams before they split completely 
  • Batten pockets and elastics - replacing worn batten pockets, the battens themselves and the elastics inside 
  • Batten ends - wear at either end of the batten 
  • UV strip - repair or replace 
  • Clew, head and tack re-enforcement areas - check for the correct stiffness for the size of sail and repair if necessary 
  • Windows - repair or replace fogged, stained, creased or broken windows 
  • Tell Tales - replace existing or fit new 
  • Cuts and rips in the main cloth - general wear on the main body of the sail
