Spinnaker Colour



Hyde's Squib sails designs are the result of a couple of winters intensive two boat tuning where Nigel Grogan (Squib 105) and Malcolm Hutchings (Squib 819) spent many hours in the Solent in conjunction with our sail designer Richard Lovering evaluating a series of squib sails each successive one designed as an improvement over the previous one.

 Richard bring an enormous amount of experience to the design of Squib sails having won many national and international championships between as well as campaigning boats as diverse as Flying fifteens, XOD's and foiling Moths. Also having participated in several Olympic campaigns as competitors as well as sail designers and tune up crew . The sails are designed using computer software called Sailpack which was developed for the Italian America's Cup team and is much superior to that used by most sailmakers. It enables Hyde's to minutely modify flying shapes into laser cut panels with exact repeatability and accuracy. The sails are sewn and finished by hand after the panels have been cut by machine according to Richard's designs.

Winning the nationals in 2013 and being runner up in 2014 made us think we have got the formula needed, however we just need that extra 1%.  So during the winter we have gone back to the drawing board again and done some serious calculations based on mast deflection side ways and fore and aft. To bring to light some serious findings. Firstly the two most common mast sections are very different in bend characteristics. This has left us with no choice but to introduce two different mainsails for the season. One to complement each mast. Please call, to discuss this if you are unsure. 

In order for us to ensure we have moved in the right direction we have carried out more Two boat tuning, again with identical boats. 

This is the dedication that puts Hyde Sails at the fore front of sail making and hopefully you at the front of your fleet.

Horizontal cut 2E
This sail was first used at the Squib Nationals in 2010 and is particularly fast dead running and projects the maximum area possible. Both the Hyde Squib spinnakers are made in Dynakote rip-stop nylon and available in a full range of colours.
Vertical Cut 7 panel
This has been the standard Squib spinnaker. The broad shoulders are the result of the increased shaping in the leech panels. Very effective on Championship triangle courses.

All our spinnaker are made out of Dynakote .75 for colours please check http://contendersailcloth.com/spinnaker/colourrange.html
