Winter Wednesdays

Date and Time 16-Jan-19 Wed 19:00 - 22:00


Richard Bowers from Moatt Sails will talk about racing sail trim.

The bar will be open from 6.30, with a start time of 7.00pm.

Richard Bowers the loft manager at Moatt Sails will give a presentation on ‘Racing Sail Trim’ on Wednesday 16-Jan-19 – the bar and galley will be open from 6.30 and the talk will start at 7pm. Moatt Sails is a small loft owned by Steve and Kate Moatt; they have been making sails and covers for 12 years. They now have a purpose built unit close to the WPNSA academy and Portland Marina. Richard’s aim is to grow the sail-making side of the business – with a passion for dinghy racing. At the moment he is making sails for Scorpions, Ospreys and International Canoes and is keen to increase the number of classes covered. With a sailing CV which has included : Sonata National Champion, J24 National Champion, Scorpion European Champion and International Canoe veteran champion, I think it should be well worth coming to hear what he has to say. Any questions you may have about sails, covers etc. will be answered…
Rob Hatherell is going to have the galley up and running so you can grab supper before the talking starts.
