It is our pleasure to announce that UK Sailmakers is re-opening in Ontario under the ownership of long time Canadian sailor Randy St. Jacques. Randy has 50 years of both racing and cruising on many boats under his belt. For the last 10 years Randy as sold sails for several brands, but he decided to move to UK Sailmakers because the brand provides the best products and reputation for service on Lake Ontario. It has been a year since Brian Chapman unexpectedly passed away leaving Toronto sailors at a loss. “Brian Chapman set the bar incredibly high for quality sails and service,” said Randy. “He will be a tough act to follow and I hope that I can live up to the expectations he created with sailors on Lake Ontario.”
“I come from a sailing family and I have been an active sailor on Lake Ontario for the past 30 years. If you don’t know me, I’m sure you have friends who do who will vouch for my knowledge, passion and integrity. I’ve been a sail buyer as well as a sail seller, so I know what’s important to sailors. UK Sailmakers’ X-Drive sails tick all the boxes of durability, performance and price for the average 25-40 footer on Lake Ontario along with the all the lakes around Ontario.
With the formation of the new loft happening so recently, there was no time to prepare a booth for this year’s Toronto International Boat Show, but UK Sailmakers Ontario will be offering Boat Show Pricing for all new sail orders placed by Thursday, January 31st.
UK Sailmakers Ontario will continue to provide UK Sailmakers customers top quality Sails and Repair Service. Please call or e-mail Randy to discuss your repair or new sail requirements.
