HOOD’s racing sails have been winning regattas and races, including the America’s Cup, since 1952
Today, HOOD’s highly experienced sail designers will work with you to build fast sails.
- HOOD specializes in designing and building racing sails for club racing, classic yachts, short-handed racing (single-handed and double handed) and one-designs that mandate woven sailcloth.
- Every sail is individually designed, using the very latest software, taking into account:
- The exact specification of your rig
- How and where you sail
- The abilities of your helmsmen and crew
- Your budget
- HOOD Sail Experts are available to sail with you to help set-up your sails in order for them to deliver their maximum potential. We then keep your sail design in our database so that when the time comes for a replacement, we can build a perfect replica or, if you require changes, we can fine-tune the design to your exact requirements.
- HOOD has an extensive database of designs for racing mainsails, genoas and spinnakers for boats as diverse as 6-Meters to Mini-Transats, Open 50s, one-design day-boats, cruiser-races, J Boats and other classic yachts.
