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 we offer sail repair and modifications. We can also repair 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.
