We both had a fantastic weekend at this great event, thanks to everyone for making us so welcome and all the advice. Thanks also to Wayne Stobbs and Tim Rees for all their help – very much appreciated . Nigel’s goal was to win a race having never sailed with a vane boat before Saturday! He achieved several wins even though he finished last in the competition. He did win the Concourse for his beautiful restoration -one of many lockdown projects.
So the 29th March has finally arrived in England and we are becoming a little ‘freer’, the orders are flooding in as we all get ready to get out there sailing and meeting up with our friends again. Get your orders in before the lead times for production really rise! Cant wait to meet up with all our friends and customers again lakeside. All the best, Nigel & Sue ( and puppy Ness too!)
Following a change of mind from a customer, we have available immediately a set of sails for the DF95. They are comprised of a B suit, C suit and a D suit. All with red jib luffs, and red and flo yellow mixed finger patches. Price is £40 per suit, if you would like numbers and country codes then we can add those for the usual costs. Shipping costs dependent upon where you are. If you are interested in these sails then just email Sue at email@example.com and I will get back to you.
Whilst we are waiting for the sailing days to come round again, why not get ordering those sails and accessories to make sure that your boats and accessories are up to scratch for when we emerge again. Shop through the website shop or drop us an email.. Thanks to all. Nigel & Sue, Catsails
We are back in the sail loft taking and making orders – you can continue to ring us, email us, and order through the website shop. The only teeny tiny difference that lockdown is going to make to your orders is that we once again reduce our visits to the Post Office to once weekly, and local customers are not able to visit the loft! Thank you to all our lovely customers both within the UK and all around the world for supporting us in these challenging times. We hope to see you all on the water sometime soon!!! I will definitely have my camera out!!! Nigel & Sue.
Wishing all our customers new and old, a Merry Christmas and a joyous New Year. We all know what we are hoping and wishing for in 2021. A huge thank you from Nigel and Sue for all your support this year – it was a tough one for everyone but you really helped us keep going.
Please note that we cannot make any more accessories or IOM, Micro Magic, Rg65 sails for delivery before Christmas now. Any orders placed for these will be fulfilled in January now. We should be able to squeeze some DF65 and DF95 sails in for UK delivery before Christmas.

Nigel couldn’t resist the chance to make some sails for this beautiful classic !
Well done to Derek Morland for the marvellous job he has done in preparing the boat, and putting her back on the water.
Want your stocking filled with lovely Catsails sailing goodies – then you need to get your orders in early so that the Catsails Elves can start cutting, sewing, sticking and parcelling…. now that is an image you will not be able to get out of your brain for a while!!!
