NEWS – As many of you know, Sue was involved in a major accident at the beginning of October 2017, she is now about to go in and have her Knee Replacement Operation, following which we hope Sue will be well on the road to full recovery. Unfortunately this is going to have an effect on our lead times for the month of June and possibly into July. So we are just asking that you email us first if you are concerned about lead times for all new orders – temporarily it will mean a longer lead time for production of sails and accessories. Current orders will not be effected. Thank you for your patience. Sue & Nigel, Catsails.
Catsails are specialist manufacturers of sails and accessories for performance radio controlled model yachts.
Proprietor Nigel Brown has been sailmaking since 1980 and has worked in some of the top sail lofts across the World including building sails for 4 America’s Cup programmes.
Years of sailmaking experience at the highest level combined with the best materials, high standards of workmanship and attention to detail have resulted in truly top quality products that are well proven on racecourses around the world. All mainsails and jibs are shaped using carefully milled moulds which ensures accurate repetition and consistency of shapes from one sail to the next.
Nigel has been building sails for the International One Metre since 2005 with sail shapes and construction techniques being continually refined ever since. IOM sails are well proven on the race circuits having won races and regattas in Spain, Italy and Malta as well as in the UK.
In 2012 the range was extended to include sails for the popular Micro Magic class that instantly received great acclaim.
When the DragonForce 65 was launched in 2013 and the DragonFlite95 in 2016 Catsails soon became one of the leading suppliers of after market sails for these popular boats and they are now shipped all around the world and have powered boats to national titles in a number of different countries.
Catsails additionally make high performance sails for the RG65 class to fit both swing and conventional rigs.
Catsails also make custom accessories that are designed to protect boats, rigs and foils whilst the boats are out of the water.
