Classics Sails
A few old Riggs are restored and belongs to our nautical heritage.
Among them, some sailing ship were used to transport, others sailing yacht to race.
More and more meetings of Classics yachts attest our history. Regattas become gradually a magic glamour.
For all these type of yacht, sails have to combine Performance, Strength, and a great aesthetic standard.
We know how to use the neglected techniques of design, trade secret and bench work, very specific to soft cloth.
More often these types of sails must fit nicely to wooden rigs.
We have the ability of an old sailmakers of the beginning of twentieth century to perform the most beautiful hand-work.
