FEATURED LOFT: UK SAILMAKERS MARINA DEL REY

For more than three decades Oliver McCann has been providing new sails and service to an ever-growing list of loyal customers in the Los Angeles, California area. Oliver has been running a UK Sailmakers loft in Los Angeles' Marina del Rey for over 20 years and for a decade before that he was making sails under his own name at the same location. Maria Moran has been expertly repairing sails and serving customers at the loft for over 20 years. Together, they strive to offer sailors the best sails and service available at a fair price.

The Tayana 47 Wind Dancer sailed to Hawaii and back with her UK Sailmakers HydraNet Radial main and dacron genoa and staysail. Oliver recommended HyrdaNet for the main since it is the sail that is up 100% of the time the boat is sailing.
