Sandhopper Sails

The Best Shapes and the Best Materials
As both of us have raced and cruised most of our adult lives, we are in a very strong position to be able to meet your needs. Whether you need club or competition sails we are here to help you. We will advise you on the best available materials to meet your particular type of racing or crusing together with advice on the best shapes to use to suit your rig type and setup.  Sandhopper sails by Lonton and GrayWe use the highest quality materials possible to ensure a long lasting sail that can cope with the harshest of conditions.

Computer Designed and Laser Cut
Each sail is individually tailored to your boat, computer designed, laser cut and hand finished. Seams are sewn with two rows of three step stitching.  By hand finishing the sails we can achieve a high quality end product, with the laser cutting giving us repeatability with a panel cutting tolerance of less than 1/10th mm.  Battens, sail bags, sail numbers and insignia are all included in the price as standard.

Everything you'd expect and that little bit extra
We pay particular attention to the detail and finishing of our sails.  A long tail is left on the bolt rope in case of shrinkage.  Cringles and pulleys are all finished by hand.  Should the worst come to the worst, we're able to quickly and efficiently repair your sails at our loft.  We can help you get the most out of your boat- ask us for specialist advice in setting up the rig and sails so you achieve the best!  Lonton and Gray design sails that are easy to set so that the crew can concentrate on the tactics.

Engineered to suit you and your Sandhopper
At Lonton and Gray, we realise that one sail doesn't 'fit all', so we have developed sails for differing crew weights.  If you have you own idea for a sail design, please contact us to discuss it further.  Lonton and Gray are class approved sail makers, and therefore in a great position to provide you with the best sails for your boat.  Please contact Ian to discuss your individual requirements before placing an order.
