In the past I got a jib for a LM24 from Hyde Sails DK. Everything was OK

This spring I got a self tacker jib, made from crusing laminate and with vertical battens. This time from Ullman Sails DK. Excellent service and very good comunication during the process! Give Lars at Ullman Sails a call and hear what he can offer.

That old link doesn't work any more so I looked on YouTube and came up with this:

I am researching for a new self tacker for my boat and have had an offer from Hyde Sails in Denmark, DK Sails in Rudkbing.

The new sail would be in Contender CDX Polyester Laminate I'm not sure which weight.

Do any of our members have experience of this material or of this sail loft?

Greetings from lovely ニrskbing.

Decision made!
 
I have just today ordered a new self tacker from Hyde sails in cruising laminate.  Two different weights of laminate film with a Pentex scrim sandwiched in between taffeta for wear with vertical battens to get a maximum roach.  All in a tri-radial design.
 
Hopefully I should have it for the Round the Island Race at the end of June...

In reply to your enquiry, Ed, I am very happy with the Hyde sails. 
The main is coming up to two years old and still in great shape with no signs of wear, albeit that we tend to stick around the Solent area and so have probably only covered about 1,500 miles with it in a maximum of F7/8.  The only concern is that it is a stiffer material and so the standard sail bag is a very tight fit and has worn badly in a couple of places and the zip stitching is beginning to go as it copes with the strain.
The jib is 15 months old and great - a useful improvement on standard, I feel, with three vertical battens to support an increased roach.  It furls very neatly.
Don't know about any particular range as such - they used a Dimension Polyant cruising laminate with a tri-radial cut for both sails.  They both look very good.
I was out yesterday in great conditions from Lymington to Gosport with two people new to the boat (and Hanses generally) on board and they were very impressed with the overall  performance and speed - but then we know all about that, don't we! Big%20smile

Jeff Thorpe, our local Quantum rep measured dimensions very carefully to build the sail as big and with as much roach as possible at the head, using vertical battens. The combination of the strong, low-stretch material and the extra fabric at the head of the sail produces a very powerful sail that can be sheeted in very flat when needed. The sail has beautiful shape and furls nicely. The price was reasonable, compared to alternatives offered by other lofts. It makes the standard self-tacker look like a toy sail.The only negatives so far are that the low cut foot sometimes needs to be skirted over the lifelines and that it just doesn't seem right to roller furl such beautiful high-tech material.If you would like more info, please let me know.


Hi Javelin, could you possibly let me have your sailmaker's details? I wouldn't mind getting a quote for a new self tacking jib for our boat here in Cyprus.

Javelin,
I actually meant to say "they don't like folding"

Javelin,

Sounds like your sailmaker hit the nail on the head. The added roach is exactly what your boat needs, greatly improves the slot and powers the front of the boat for better balance. Actually furling these high tech sails is one of the best ways to store them. They don't like furling!
Enjoyed meeting you at Strictly Sail.

Rich
