Hyde Squib Jib

New design sail with straight exit Window and tell tales included. Leach line and tape and clip hanks. Other hanks or hank-free sails available if preferred. Genoas to fit the new roller systems are also available to the same design.

Hyde's Squib sail designs are the result of a couple of winters intensive two boat tuning where Nigel Grogan (Squib 105) and Malcolm Hutchings (Squib 819) spent many hours in the Solent in conjunction with our two sail designers Mike Lennon and Richard Lovering evaluating a series of sails each successive one designed as an improvement over the previous one.

Mike and Richard bring an enormous amount of experience to the design of Squib sails having won many national and international championships between them as well as campaigning boats as diverse as Flying Dutchman to XOD. Both have participated in several Olympic campaigns as competitors as well as sail designers and tune up crew . The sails are designed using computer software called Sailpack which was developed for the Italian America's Cup team and is much superior to that used by most sailmakers. It enables Hyde's to minutely modify flying shapes into laser cut panels with exact repeatability and accuracy. The sails are sewn and finished by hand after the panels have been cut by machine according to Mike and Richard's designs.
