Sails in a Classic Style
Ratsey & Lapthorn make classic sails in a style replicating the "Big Class" era. Narrow panels, traditional corners, hand sewn rings, external cringles, hand-roping with tapered, Rat-Tail, ends, leather finishing. Our traditional sailmaking skills enable us to offer sails totally hand-sewn, The racing 15mtr Tuiga and the schooner Altair were re-launched after their extensive restorations with full suits of Ratsey & Lapthorn classic sails, the gaff sails and staysails being totally hand-sewn.
We can offer a sail package and style of sailmaking to suit all requirements.
