He has built sails and competed for customers all over the world, from Sabot’s to Maxi’s. John has spent many years working on the development of membrane sails including the Veloce continual fibre product.

JP Sailmakers Sydney is a full-service sailmaker, providing new sails, on-site service and repair for both performance racers and cruisers. JP Sails Sydney has a reputation for impeccable service, quality sail repair, and new sail engineering. This attention to detail has made JP Sails the choice of some of today’s leading racing and cruising sailors throughout the world.

JP Sydney Sailmakers, has the goal of bringing affordable and durable new sails to everyone in the market, as well as reliable repairs and professional canvas work.
