A few words for those who transmitted to us the know-how... Dating back to 1200 years before J.C. in ancient Greece and probably coming from China, the first sailmakers manufacture and repair sails for merchant and warships. So with the rise of Hellenism, the valuable expertise of the sailmakers moved around the Mediterranean. Closer to our days, modern ships in the early seventeenth century often had sailmaker crew on board for maintenance and repair of sails. In the 19th century the great sailmakers open in France, England, USA and Australia. Today, the sails are computer-assisted design and manufacture. The laser digital table is used to cut the fabric to the exact shape. This advance in technology has greatly improved the accuracy of the sails and reduced space and time needed for their manufacture. Sailcloths more and more efficient and powerful are designed by the great firms Dimension Polyant, Contender Sailcloth, Challenge Sailcloth.
