Haarstick WINS!!

Charleston Race Week Recap

Back to Back Wins for "Superfecta"!!

In 2013 I travelled down to do Charleston Race Week for the first time. Immediately on arrival things seemed to run smooth and the weather and hospitality were top notch. Perhaps a good omen. That year we sailed in the J-24 class and were lucky enough to win both our class and the Overall Trophy!! Not too shabby!

STEALTH !!!

New Stealth Material from Dimension Polyant

2014 is an exciting year for Haarstick Sailmakers. Between the J70 sails that we have designed and new cloth that we will be using for Racing boats we are once again keeping up with the fast, innovating times that we live in! This upcoming Race Season we will be offering a new Racing Laminate Film called STEALTH. This Laminate is a non-reflective material with a steel/grey look (picture below). Besides the fact that it looks amazing, it does have some better qualities than the traditional clear laminates. STEALTH will be better for UV protection, and the non–reflective film will be better on the eyes on those sunny days that it is hard to see the trim.. We are currently building sails for a Farr 47 and a Beneteau 40.7 out of this new material. As for the future we plan on testing this for the J/24 and any other small boats that accept laminates. STEALTH is now an option on top of our already competitive FLEX and CARBON Sails.
