1st, 2nd & 3rd at the 2018 Championship. In fact, the top 4 all used Hyde sails. Peter Thompson & Mark Dell won the championship but were pushed very hard by Alex Farrell & Paul Beasley. Hyde Sails own Dave Hall sailed with Steve Hopper into third place.
Since the rule change the current Mainsail and Genoa are now made in white 5.52 Polykote. A very hard wearing and stable cloth ideal for the conditions and use the Sandhopper sails require
Hyde will continue to be involved with the Sandhopper. The Sandhopper has a place in Hyde’s history in that it has its roots in the corner of the UK that Hyde’s first loft was based.
Hyde Sails are known in the fleet for their consistency in shape and reliability and are the best value sails available
Hyde Sails give £500 for Squib nationals.
Tarbert was wet and cold for two of this popular four day regatta, however the race committee managed to get in six races over the three days of racing. Sadly the wind gods didn’t want the crews to play Monday with too much wind at times to little at others and some perfect racing breezes to suit at others. The coastal race lived up to expectations providing champagne sailing on the downwind legs!
Congratulations from Hyde Sails to Chris and crew who not only won their class but the overall event.
Solo win for Richard Lovering
