Hyde have a long tradition and involvement with the 505 class. Having won many World and National championships in the past the Hyde 505 sails are known in the fleet for their consistency in shape and reliability. With Hyde Sails lead designer having a successful period in the class in 2015/16, increased focus is now being applied with Ben McGrane (2019 505 European and UK National Champion) joining the Hyde Sails Team.

Through 2021 the Hyde Sails have put a great deal of time into refining the sails from Richard's 2016 iterations, the mainsail depth has been reduced (still a powerful sail suited to all crew weights) and leech twist profile modified. The jib depth has been increased and the exist straightened to give a more forgiving sail that is easier to trim but also more powerful than the previous designs. Currently the spinnaker is unchanged with Ben having found the design to be better for reaching than any of the sails he had used previously but without compromise for square running.
