Doyle Sails’ success at Etchells Pre-Worlds

Doyle Sails continues to enjoy considerable success in the Etchells fleet with David Clark and team taking first place at the Zhik International Australian Nationals this week, and second place going to Jud Smith and team. Both were using Doyle One-Design Etchell sails.

As well as supplying sails to winning boats, Doyle personnel have a strong pedigree within the fleet; Doyle sailmakers and designers are well represented on the Etchells World Championship winners’ roster.

Jud Smith, head of design at Doyle’s one-design department, was world champion in 2006 and has won the Etchells US championships six times. Jud is acknowledged as one of the finest one-design designers in the world.

Doyle South East Queensland’s Bucky Smith won the Etchells World Championship in 2009 and Doyle Lake Macquarie’s Peter McNeill won the World Championship in 2004.

Doyle lofts from around the world are fortunate to have access to the sail designs from these winning teams and open communication between lofts internationally ensures that up to date feedback on the latest designs and technology is available to all lofts in the Doyle group. Bucky Smith and Peter McNeill are particularly active in the development of Etchells sails for Australian conditions

With the Etchells Worlds being sailed out of Sydney’s Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron from 20th February 2012, Doyle’s Rushcutters Bay loft is ideally placed to service any sails that need attention.

Bucky Smith, Peter McNeill and Jud Smith will all be competing in the Etchells Worlds next week.

Call Doyle Australia on 02 9361 4836 or email to service(at)doyleaustralia.com to arrange free pick up and redelivery.
