A fantastic morning spent with Sir Robin Knox Johnson onboard clipper yacht Garmin in St Kats Docks. Sir Robin was onboard to present Hyde Sails Managing Director Nigel Grogan with a cake to celebrate Hyde Sails 50th anniversary.
Sir Robin wanted to personally thank Hydes for making his sails for his boat Grey Power for his Route de Rhum race in 2014. Sir Robin complemented the cloth supplied by Bob Bainbridge and the team at Challenge Sailcloth and the quality of workmanship from our team at our loft. Sir Robin even asked us to make him a new stay sail so we have added to our busy orders for his next adventure. With the back drop of the impressive clipper Garmin yacht talk soon turned to our partnership with Sir Robin and Clipper for the 2015-2016 race, we are very proud to be working together again with such a great team and look forward to meeting some of the new crew at the brief this afternoon.
For proven quality, top level endorsements and high end racing and cruising sails, make sure your next set of sails is Hydes. For a custom quote and to talk to the team come to London boat show.
