HYDE SAILS Squib sails are a result of a vigorous two boat tuning regime. With numerous delevelopments being taken into account to keep up with the modern ways in which the boat is now sailed.

Having re-designed the sails for the improved new stable cloth and also making the sails much more user friendly (you can find the new barber hauler position and tuning guide below).

For 2020: The AGM at the Torquay nationals passed some rule changes to improve the squib sails, mainly these are to do with visbality by increasing the amount of windows allowed in each sail. Your new sails will now feature; 3 tell-tale windows on the jib, plus an extra collision window. The mainsail now can have either a leech window, to see the jib sheeting position from sat out, or an addtional collision window and you can sepcify if you would like draft stripes or not, which will help you read the shape of your sail.

Hyde sails maintain it's values and do not have or make 'special' sails for specific sailors so one can trust the performance of their sails out the box, which of course come measured from our state of the art IHC (in house certified) loft. 




Shackle tape to jib tack position at bow, tie a pen/pencil at 2m 52cm and scribe a line on the cuddy. Then take another tape and measure 34cm from the centreline (hold tape to match curve of cuddy), where lines intersect is the centre position of your barber hauler exit. The reason for doing this is because jib tack positions vary on each boat. There was a 3cm difference between the 105 and 881, maybe this is the myth behind old boats being quicker?
