cruising Sails

Ratsey and Lapthorn’s reputation for making ‘sails that last’ is well known. We regularly get asked to replace Ratsey sails have used for decades, often since launch. Strong and durable sails are imperative for the cruising sailor but they also need to perform well, that extra half a knot over a long passage can make an enormous difference. 

With that in mind the expert sailmakers in the Ratsey and Lapthorn Sail Loft aim to improve the performance as well as the looks of your boat by working with you and using the latest design technology available.

We want to get you on the water with a suit of sails tailored to your needs. One of the Ratsey team will be only too happy to come out to your boat to measure up and discuss your requirements.
