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).
As for results in 2018; at the classes most recent national champoinship, with 100 boats, Hyde Sails were used on the winning boat and 17 out of the top 20!
With other Hyde sails users winning the following events.
Hyde sails maintain it's values and do not have or make 'special' sails for specific sailors so one can trust the perfromace of their sails out the box, which ofcourse come measured from our state of the art IHC loft. With sails avaliable within 3 weeks from order - why not choose Hyde Sails!
WE WILL NOT BE BEATEN ON QUALITY, PRICE OR PERFORMANCE.
BARBER HAULER POSITION:
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?
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
