We’ve been bowled over by the success of our online shop, gobsmacked that so many people from so many places want to buy cool stuff for their DF65’s and RC Lasers from us. We’ve been beavering away in the shed and since our last post here we’ve shipped sails, stickers and other goodies all over the world.
Here is a suit of sails we shipped to Denmark the other day.
As well as dealing with the day to day Soch Sails orders its that time of year when our other business, a full size boatyard for those of you who don’t know!, gets busy with winter servicing and undercover storage so we’ve been dealing with that too, although we’ve got a great team down there!
As well as this we’ve also slowly been adding more products and categories to the online shop and getting a little sleep here and there. As if this wasn’t enough to be getting on with we’ve been doing some product development, our sailbags need a little more work before we launch them to the world but we are pretty pleased with our boat and keel socks which we will add to the shop when we get a moment and our panelled RG65 sails are currently being tested at our local test location, more on that soon enough!
More cool stuff that will appear in the shop soon enough!
In other news I haven’t sailed much recently but am starting to get excited about the US DF65 Nationals at the end of this month. Team GBR now numbers 4 with myself, Mark Dicks, Ken Binks and the late addition of Nigel Brown which will ensure that there is plenty of talent representing GBR. I’m assured by the organisers that they are ready for us, I’m not so sure but it’s going to be a blast.
Current lead time on sails is around a week or less, deck stickers are running a 24 hour turnround time and other parts are usually in stock for same day shipping when ordered before lunchtime.
If there are any other cool products that you think we should be offering then please let us know!
