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!!!
We are still 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 lockdown is going to make to your orders is that we once again reduce our visits to the Post Office to once weekly! 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!!! Nigel & Sue.
Thank you for my transmitter cover. Your product was recommended by club members and after a speedy delivery I now have a dry transmitter and warm hands. I highly recommend Catsails. One VERY happy customer. Martin
Do remember that the material is not waterproof, it will happily withstand showers but not heavy downpours and water will always run down your cuffs too!!
All orders placed now for accessories will be made after we return from our break. Orders can be placed via the website shop and an automated reply will be generated – we are still here for one more week and we do have some accessories in stock so you can always email Sue direct on firstname.lastname@example.org to see if we happen to have the accessory you require already made up. Many thanks. Nigel
I have always wanted a skiff IOM and came across this V3 in Eastbourne that was in need of some TLC ( I am sure that Terry, the previous owner, would not mind me saying). The hull was split along both gunwales and also had various splits and holes elsewhere. I salvaged as many parts as I could from the rigs and built new mast and boom for the A rig – all sails of course were replaced. After attempting to paint the hull myself and making a real mess of it, our friend Pete Smith took it off my hands and spent many hours preparing the surface, and doing a fabulous job of the prep and final finish – I am sure you will all agree as she now looks brand new! Not bad for an 18 year old boat. Many thanks to Pete. Now all we need is some water at our local lake – Gosport – to go for a ‘first’ sail.
Please note that as from the 12th August, the lead time for production of all new orders of IOM suits of sails will be approximately 8 weeks from point of order. Many thanks. Nigel.
