One-hand non-stop around the world
Sail Service produced the sails for this in 2017: from Hydra Net sailcloth by Dimension Polyant (German sail cloth manufacturer), which is perfect for offshore use.
In Yacht 13/2018 there is a detailed article about Szymon Kuczynski’s circumnavigation record.
Quote from the yacht: “And what… worked particularly well? Kuczynski immediately starts chatting again – and rants about his two sails made of Hydra Net. They did their duty for eight months… I didn’t have a single hole in the sail, not a tear or a break at a crease” enthuses the Polish guy. “I didn’t have to pick up a needle once the whole time.”
Incidentally, Szymon Kaczynski also set a world record: as the smallest yacht of all time, he made it around the world alone and non-stop – in 270 days.
Sail Service is proud to have been a partner in this wonderful voyage as a sail supplier!

New Aramid Sport sails for a Hanse 325
Here is a great example for you to start the season sporty and fresh.
For this Hanse 325 we have made a new self-tacking jib and a new mainsail made of Aramid Sport Liteskin material from Dimension Polyant in a tri-radial cut.
We think it looks great – and it sails great too.
