Easton, Maryland (PRWEB) September 24, 2009
A group of sailmakers from across the world today announced the formation of Evolution Sails, a high-end custom sailmaker focused on the art of hands-on sail manufacturing. The new group differentiates itself from marketing driven, mass produced sail manufacturing by focusing on creating high-quality customized sails that combine art, craft, and skill with proprietary membrane production technology.
"Evolution Sails is different because the sailmakers are also serious sailors who want to control the entire process and build the sails from design to finish in their lofts. Our group has decades of cumulative experience both in the art and business of sailmaking and will be using traditional sailmaking structure with the most advanced technology available," said Scott Gibbs of Evolution Sails, "The technology we use was developed by us and is being used exclusively inside the group. Evolution Sails has an incredible synergy with enthusiastic team members."
The Evolution Sails lofts are present in sailing centers of the world, including USA lofts in Maryland, New Jersey and Rhode Island, Australia lofts in Queensland and Sydney, a New Zealand loft in Auckland, Canada lofts in Quebec and Toronto, and a loft in Singapore. This collaborative group plans to expand by partnering with other elite sailmakers around the globe.
Evolution Sails is already making an impact. Vincitore, with 6 new Evolution Sails on board, won the US IRC Championship and the San Francisco Big Boat Series. Vincitore is a custom Reichel Pugh 52 and had 6 new Evolution sails, Code 1, 2 and 3 jibs, A1, A1.5 and A2.
Evolution Sails will be making their first public appearance at the U.S. Sailboat Show, held October 8-12 in Annapolis, MD, where Evolution Sails will be exhibiting at booth F-1.
