DON’T LEAVE YOUR SAILS EXPOSED TO THE WINTER WINDS



With the season drawing to a close, this is a reminder to have your sails serviced over the coming winter so they’re ready to go next spring. Instead of leaving your sails exposed to the elements, have them washed, inspected, repaired and stored in our climate-controlled storage facility.
Never leave your sails exposed to the elements on the boom or furled around the headstay all winter. UK Sailmakers Winter Service is much better for your sails than abandoning them to the icy winter winds that will try to rip them to shreds. And if a shredded furling genoa is not bad enough, a flogging genoa has a good chance of blowing a boat off its jack- stands leading to disastrous results.

If you think stuffing your sails below for the winter is a good plan, think again. Sails left in your boat are exposed to mildew and extreme temperature swings from cold to frigid. If you are storing your sails yourself, keep them dry and warm. A dry basement is better than a cold garage.
