We have recently built sails for Philip Walwyn who owns the yachtbuilders, Pleasant Boats in St. Kitts. Phillip has nearly finished the replica First rule 12 metre and Gowen Ocean built sails for her.

She is gaff rigged and the sails have been made using a cream Dacron with tan thread to preserve the traditional appearance.

She will be shortly launched and will be sailed in the Classic regattas.

Journalist Paul Heiney raced ‘Ayesha’, a Biscay 36 in the 2005 Ostar. She has been equipped with Gowen sails since she was built in 1982 and they have successfully taken her on five Atlantic crossings, a voyage to deepest Antarctica and more recently in the AZAB and 2005 OSTAR races

Gowen Ocean celebrated 100 years of sailmaking in 2003, one of the longest established sailmakers in the UK.

However, time hasn't stood still.

We are still able to call on the traditional skills of the past but with all the technology available today.

Whilst we build a wide range of sails, our core business is building quality cruising sails. particularly bluewater.
