Neil Pryde Sails Partnership
Neil Pryde Sails is proud to announce a partnership with Oakcliff Sailing a non-profit sailing and coaching center located in Oyster Bay, New York.
Our first order built during the winter, was to outfit their fleet of Match 40 racing sailboats with new spinnakers. Designed for racing but built to stand the rigors of use at this level, the sails are .75oz nylon, radially cut and with the addition of 1.5oz nylon in the high-load and high stress areas of the sails.
Oakcliff Sailing has summer training programs in inshore, offshore, high performance, onboard reporting, and match racing, and the center hosts weekly racing and race training for supporters. Led by former America’s Cup and Whitbread round the world racer Dawn Riley, Oakcliff trains athletes of the highest caliber on a variety of race boats in a variety of disciplines. With a complete live-in bunkhouse that can sleep up to 40, athletes have around-the-clock access to the facilities training center, sail loft, boatyard, and workshop. This America’s Cup style campus allows Oakcliff to produce complete sailors who are not only excellent racers but also proficient in a wide variety of industry skills from campaign management to sailmaking and composite work.
