About the Owner: Craig Millar

Craig Millar founded CMSails in January 2018. His efforts were joined by a production team with whom he had worked for ten years, craftsmen and women, who have an outstanding reputation in the industry for building the highest quality sails.

He brings extensive sailing experience as a successful South African Yachtsman, encompassing both cruising and achievements as a round-the-world yacht racing skipper. Craig’s experience and insights significantly contribute to the high-quality sail manufacturing process at his loft. Beyond sailing, Craig’s successful ventures span diverse industries, including aluminum and entertainment businesses. Notably, he co-founded the Sail Africa Youth Development Foundation alongside his wife, Taryn.

Craig is thrilled to connect with a global network of lofts and bring his perspectives and ideas to the table as part of the UK Sailmakers International group.
