MY EXPERIENCE

  • 34 years experience as sailmaker

  • 5 000 sails designed: cruising sails, classic sails, One Design, racing sails, offshore racing sails

I have been involved in the sailmaking feld since 1987. I am a recognized sailmaker and have worked for international groups like the UK Sailmakers Group or the Ullman Sails Group. In addition, during 5 years, I have successfully developed business for an outsourced leading sailmaker. After 15 years of design with the software Fabric from the Crain, I have made the choice since 2008 to use Azure Project from Smar Azure to design and improve sail shape.
