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.

‘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

on the traditional skills of the past but with all the
technology available today.

sails. particularly bluewater.
