Inspection / survey
Servicing / overhaul

When we service your sail we check every seam, fitting and hardware, we check batten pockets, inspect luff for chafe / tears, we check the stitching in fact we check over the whole sail we really don’t miss a stitch. Any damage to your sails should be repaired as quickly as possible and we offer a full repair service.
