Red Sky Sails
Sail Loft Est. 2001
As a traditional sail loft, we received our training at Northwest School of Boat Building, where the student's textbook is the The Sailmakers Apprentice; A Guide for the Self Reliant Sailor, by Emiliano Marino. We are avid sailors with a background in one-design racing in the mountain west, and in cruising the eastern seaboard, among other destinations.
At our location in central Connecticut (and Florida) we offer new Doyle Sails ™ and Stackpack CradleCovers™, along with sail repairs and modifications. We repair not only sails but most any other marine covers and outdoor "canvas" products. We also refurbish Trailer-Sailers, Sunfish, and Laser sailboats for resale.
We offer a small number of used sailboats (trailerable and dinghies) in various states of restoration. This side gig was born out of a desire to adopt older sailboats, update them, and recommision for a new owner. We offer sailboats at a fraction of the cost of new boats, and provide the necessary assistance with setup, rigging, and launch. Training is available to the novice sailor in sailing theory and on-the-water boat handling.
Red Sky by morning, sailor take warning.
Red Sky at night, sailor's delight.
