Quantum Sails has announced the addition of Quantum Sails Hamble to its network of affiliate loft. The company will serve sailors in the Solent area and across the UK.
The loft will be headed by John Reivers and Tom Gall, who also operate SO31, a Southampton-based company that provides repairs and services for sails, bespoke canvas products and other sailing related products.
Commenting on the partnership, Reivers says: “Quantum’s attention to detail, quality and meticulous design process also fit well with our customers’ expectations of high quality and excellent performing sails.”
Tom Gall is the loft manager and a world-class sailmaker and sailor. He has been a part of several projects including the two-handed Transat Jaques Vabre 2007 race as crew member, working alongside world-class sailor Pete Goss as boat captain for his Class 40 ‘DMS’ in 2010, serving as a member of the shore crew for Puma Ocean Racing for the Volvo Ocean Race 2008-2009 and most recently, sailing onboard Volvo 70 ‘Maserati’ in 2012 for a Transatlantic Record attempt.
“John and his team are known for the quality of their products, services and workmanship, as well as a high level of customer service. We are excited to renew our presence in the UK and welcome the Hamble team to the Quantum network,” says Quantum Sails president Ed Reynolds.
