Sails by North Sails in Cape Town

We have long had an agreement to sell North Sails with our boat kits, from a small dinghy to a large yacht.

This is an Optimist sail, one that we shipped with an Optimist kit to Zurich in Switzerland.

The buyer has the option to buy the North Sail with the boat kit order, or at a later stage when the boat has been built if that suits better.

Packing and shipping our kit orders

We have shipped World wide, it is to some thirty four countries now.

The orders are processed then either packed between two sheets of packing plywood and steel band strapped for full security or we make a crate and pack the order in that, still with the steel band straps of course.

This is a multi kit order and to Zurich in Switzerland, in the order was an Argie 15 and two Optimists.

With these kits we also supplied the North Sails and Harken deck equipment plus selected meranti wood cut and machined to size.

Okoume marine plywood CNC shaped to size, the kit is for one of the Optimists.

 Each Optimist kit we sell is sold with a fourteen page printed  A4 sized builders guide, with pictures, plus the class measurement forms.
