Blimey  - I thought you were Speed Sails, surprised to hear you are leaving. Did the Estaugh family still own part of it? Is Speeds still suffering from some legacy debt problems?

Anyway best of luck with the new venture. You are two very nice chaps who know your stuff and will no doubt be followed by your customers.

What news of the new loft? Anyone bought a suit of HD sails yet? 
I've just realised that the details we keep on sailmakers is out-of-date.

I have set up Creation Covers to supply covers and accessories. I'm sure you will find my prices very competitive due to my low overheads, while quality remains excellent. I'm not VAT registered so can pass savings on to the customer. I can be contacted by phone or email until the website is up and running.
