Race Preparation

We specialise in race yacht preparation. From keel fairing and hull sanding to deck system optimisation, whatever your racing goals are we will work with you to find the best solutions for your boat campaign and budget.

Race Yacht Optimisation

We have extensive knowledge and experience of working with boat owners and crew to make sure their yacht is optimised to the best possible race rating and also for the best possible race performance. This may involve the weighing of your boat, deck systems redesign and rig tuning. Plus, we work with a number of high performance deck gear brands to offer you the best winches, blocks and deck fittings on the market.

Keel Fairing and Templating

Make sure your keel is smooth for best aerodynamic effect through the water. We use longboards to carefully sand back the surface through a variety of grades to the desired finish. Over time keels can become uneven and damaged so we also build up areas of the keel to templates to ensure it fits the boat’s original design profile and shape.

Hull Fairing

If you want a smooth finish to your hull, we can help.  Just like with keel fairing, we use longboards to sand back the surface of the hull through various fine grades to the desired finish. This helps with aerodynamics and can improve your speed through the water.

Hull Care and Antifouling

We offer expert advice on the best protection for your hull and foils. Depending on whether your boat spends a lot of time in the water or if you choose to dry sail, we can find the best anti-foul solution and paint finish for your needs.
