Mike Sanderson pushes Stratis Production plant to near capacity    

'ICAP Leopard with Doyle Stratis Main'   
Production at Doyle Sails NZ has been pushed to near capacity since Mike Sanderson became a very active part of the company in recent weeks. The grand prix side of the business has taken off with the design and production teams at full speed on major international projects.

Super-maxi 'Leopard 3', fitted with a new Stratis main for the Annapolis - Newport Race, continued on her successful road with an excellent third overall on IRC and a very satisfying result of a lead out of the Chesapeake of 10 miles.

For Europe, Alex Thomson’s full new set of Stratis race sails for 'Hugo Boss' is due for fitting next week for the European circuit.
From Hugo Boss, Alex Thomson commented:

'The team at Alex Thomson Racing are looking forward to the next generation Stratis sails arriving on board 'Hugo Boss'. The design and backup that Doyle NZ provides has been fantastic and the input form Richard Bouzaid into this type of program is invaluable'

On top of that the very successful Reichel Pugh race boat 'Shockwave' has also ordered Stratis sails for its forthcoming campaign.

Doyle NZ believes that the future for high tech sailing in New Zealand is going from strength to strength. Mike Sanderson comments

'The New Zealand marine industry is acknowledged as a world leader when it comes to developing technologies, and the 100% Kiwi owned and operated Doyle NZ Stratis facility is certainly a showcase example. High tech sail making in New Zealand is continuing to lead the industry and I am excited to be able to combine my experience with the already successful team here. The efficiencies that have developed at the Stratis plant allow us to continue servicing our customers in the local markets where we also have a strong presence. We have some very very exciting projects in the pipeline so all in all exciting times'
