Quantum Sails Ireland - Last Chance to Order Sails for Dun Laoghaire to Dingle Race, Sovereigns Cup & Even Dun Laoghaire Regatta

Mark Mansfield, Quantum Sails agent Ireland reports that with Covid-19 numbers reducing, there is additional confidence that some of the early and mid-summer regattas may go ahead.

Events like Dun Laoghaire to Dingle Race, commencing the 9th of June and the Sovereigns Cup on the 23rd of June could still make the Covid-19 cut.

However, this is also the busiest time for sail manufacturing so spinnaker orders could still make Dun Laoghaire to Dingle race (just), whereas main and headsail orders will likely be delivered later and can still make July's Dun Laoghaire Regatta.

Our Top Level Fusion Membrane sail delivery is now the end of June for sails ordered now.

Cruising sails orders have been busy all season and our Contender CDX laminated Option for Radial Upwind sails is the most popular choice for our Clients. A bit more expensive than Dacron, but it will hold a good shape for a lot longer.

Delivery for sails such as these are now out to the end of June for Delivery, so still in time for Dun Laoghaire Regatta.
