Announcing this exciting new development Paul Eldrid commented 'Our new partnership with OneSails will keep our business at the forefront of sail making technology allowing us to provide our customers, racing and cruising, with leading edge products. Our core strategy remains unchanged but the new direction allows us to supply the 4T Forte™ composite membrane construction system, and to pursue research into sail design and aerodynamic systems which will have a direct beneficial effect on the sails we supply to all our clients.'

Dede De Luca, CEO of OneSails added 'at the time we were looking for a professional and reliable partner to successfully introduce our OneSails brand in the Western Australian market with the same standards of quality and service we require from all our partners. The agreement with Paul Eldrid meets all our criteria, Paul's expertise will be invaluable in the highly competitive Australian market where the sailing activity is widespread and practiced year round'.



Ten years ago former World Champion sailor Paul Eldrid opened the multi-level state of the art facility totaling 380 square meters with close proximity to all major sailing clubs and marinas being within 20 minutes of all Swan River based clubs and 10 minutes from Fremantle. Offering new sails, repair services and design consultation for all types of sailing crafts, from dinghy's through to super yachts the sails are designed, engineered and built to the most rigorous of standards and meet demanding quality controls. Paul’s One Design sails have won State, National and World Championships and his sails have won six of the past seven Western Australia Offshore Championships.

As OneSails Perth Paul and his team are committed to continue providing the high level of service that their customers have come to expect and are looking forward to offering a wider and more comprehensive range of products and services to their existing and future customers both in WA and worldwide.

Can World Sailing learn from dear old Oz?
Why just lay the drop sheets out and tape up the edges of the windows for a splash of paint Some time ago now, Sail-World proposed that ISAF had a really good opportunity at hand when it morphed into World Sailing (WS). Why just lay the drop sheets out and tape up the edges of the windows for a splash of paint, when you could bring out the jackhammers and do a proper reno??? A call was issued for 200,000 sets of goggles and earmuffs to be supplied and for the real work to be commenced.

World Sailing Cup V3 - A Dead Rat in a Shoe or Spring Daffodils?
While a host of major sailing events go from strength to strength, the Sailing World Cup has very major issues. Last night my Irish better half was sitting beside me on the sofa watching an Australian version of the popular TV Cooking Program My Kitchen Rules on a tablet with her headphones while I was watching Diehard II for the seventeenth time (it’s a boy thing) on TV. She suddenly spluttered and laughed, took off her headphones and motioned for me to mute Diehard. (Seriously!!)
