Join us in Annapolis for a Rules Presentation by UK Sailmakers’ rules guru Charles “Butch” Ulmer. Butch makes learning the rules interesting as well as entertaining. Instead of lecturing, he presents questions using UK Sailmakers’ animated rules quiz program. After showing situations he uses the Socratic method to get the room involved and thinking. A healthy dose of humor is part of the program. Come to learn something new or to brush up. As Butch says, “A good knowledge of the rules is worth several places at a major regatta.”
We need to know how many chairs to provide.
Uni Titanium. New. Different.
Uni-Titanium from UK Sailmakers is an innovative technological development for customers who demand the highest performance from their sails. Uni-Titanium is the only sail making system that takes advantage of both corner to corner load bearing fiber as well as Uni directional spread carbon filaments. When we add these “Unis” to our already successful Titanium line, they allow the same sail handling and weight characteristics as a traditional sail, but deliver performance that approaches zero stretch.
At 20% greater stretch resistance than any competing string and film sail for nearly identical weight, the most durable film sails on the market have become the highest performing.
