Service is our keyword and this, together with our combined experience and knowledge of over 50 years in sailmaking and 20 years of manufacturing in Scotland, ensures that you have a well-proven and reliable product.
All sails and accessories are carefully designed and produced on a "one-off basis" as we are NOT a mass-production sailmaking business.
We carefully select sail cloth with the aid of stretch test graphs for each sail, specifically according to sail type and aspect ratio.
It is because of our in-depth knowledge of sail cloth and yachts that we are able to advise our customers of the most suitable sails for their requirements.

About The Centre
A log chalet style building with excellent indoor facilities. During courses you will use the lecture rooms, changing rooms, drying area and dining room. For relaxing in the evenings there is a comfortable lounge and bar, sauna and gym facilities. The log chalets accommodate twelve persons in twin rooms with bunks. Each chalet has a lounge area with basic kitchen facilities. The grounds around the Centre are ideal for the storage of the equipment used and for rigging and preparation. The beach is only metres away once you are ready to go afloat.
The Instructional Staff
All our full time and seasonal staff are highly qualified in what we do. Staff members bring with them their own energy and enthusiasm for the activities. They also have a huge breadth and depth of personal and instructing experience in their own specialist areas that their certification may not reflect. Ashore our support staff will endeavour to make your stay with us as comfortable and welcoming as possible. All Instructional staff hold a valid first aid certificate.
