The Owner.

Kevin Sproul, Technical Director

Kevin has been in sail making since he was headhunted (by Sobstad) as a talented young sailor. That was 30 years ago!. Kevin moved through the Olympic pathway classes and still, when time permits, races in the J80 Class using the Ultimate Sails boat as a test bed for new sail developments. As a sought after tactician and helm, Kevin has been successful nationally and internationally. Winning multiple World, European and National Championships in One designs such as the Swan 45, Farr 40, Soto 40, J111, Mumm 30, Melges 24 and the aforementioned J80 (7 x National Champion). Numerous Cowes weeks, 3 x Commodores Cups, and the five big European Regatta's (Palma Vela, Capri Rolex Cup, Carlo Negri Regatta, Porto Fino, Copa Del Rey Palma, Voiles St. Tropez) and most race days he can be found on the Solent or sometimes further afield making sure Ultimate clients and customers are getting the best from their sails.

 

Kevin is one of our key designers, gifted with the talent to take what he sees on the water and put it directly into designs. Not many lofts can boast such a close relationship between sailor on board, and designer.
