Many Thanks Jeckells.

Many Thanks Jeckells.
After three months of sailing in different conditions with our new set of Jeckells' sails I could not have wished for better.  The performance in light and storm conditions is exceptional, the cruising chute gave 3-4 knots boat speed in 4-5 knots of wind, the slot in the cutter foresails is spot on, 9 knots boat speed is the norm; we have yet to use the storm sails but after our experience so far I am confident they will perform just as well.  Your visits to the boat during the final stage of build to advise on aspects of the deck layout, which we implemented, were of great assistance.  The boat as you know is a 47ft steel live aboard but under sail outperforms most lightweight cruisers of the same size due not only to the Dudley Dix hull design but also the fantastic performance of your custom designed sails.
Again many thanks Jeckells, whom I am glad to note after 175 years continue to manufacture their sails in England.
