You wouldn’t climb a mountain in jeans, nor would you antifoul your boat in a tuxedo. Every day we make decisions about what fabrics are best suited to our activities. Are they comfortable and durable? Do they look good and perform as they should? The same should apply for sails, yet sailcloth for many cruising boats is low on the priority list. True, you can’t change your sails as often as your wardrobe, but you do have a choice that can make a significant difference to the handling and performance of your boat. However, advances in technology mean performance cloth is now available for everyday cruisers. PBO finds out more from sailmaker Ian Brown.

Practical Boatowner

Excellent boat magazine, well organized and written. I's a pleasure for me reading it every month.
As an internationally appreciated magazine, I would only suggest to dedicate a little more space to other cruising grounds, especially in the Med area.
