minX wins X-Yachts Solent Cup

minX wins X-Yachts Solent Cup using Ultimate SailsUltimate Sails received a new sails brief from long-standing customer Gary and Sasha Fry who in 2018 were looking for new sails for the X-Yachts Xp 44.


The brief: Our new sails need top end performance, with a high tech look about them. We want to race and cruise with them, as well as short-handed sailing.


The Ultimate Sails solution: Ultimate Sails Platinum. Our membrane sail, which is gaining momentum on the race course. This is membrane sail technology, sandwiched between two layers of a continuous filament matrix made from multi-directional yarns. This sail offers customers the ideal balance of racing and cruising with no compromise.


The result: There was a one-year lead time on the boat, and sails were designed off a plan of the yacht as it was the first of its kind in the UK. The result from their most recent regatta highlights how successful they are as, Gary and Sasha Fry win the X-Yachts Solent Cup hosted by Royal Southern Yacht Club, 4-6 May. Winning both the fleet at the pursuit race.


Congratulations to Gary, Sasha, and the crew of minX.
