POSTED 20 MARCH, PLEASE CHECK WITH THE BUSINESS
We wanted to let you know that we’re still open for business - with some modifications to how we do it, in order to keep everyone as healthy as possible during this unusual period.
Please call ahead if you wish to visit Wareham: we request this be avoided as far as possible though. Guidance on best practice for cleanliness and separation are fluid, and hence our arrangements on this are subject to change.
Due to the small size our unit in Gosport is now closed to the public, and sails may be collected by appointment only. We remain delighted to speak to you on the phone (or indeed via email) from either site of course!
We ask that you settle outstanding invoices remotely (via BACS, or card over the phone): we will be shipping as normal on Wednesdays, and are reassured by the preparations put in place by our courier partners.
To use our drop sheds, please make arrangements with our office (01929 554308) and at least 2 weeks in advance of any desired collection date, and then the relevant marina office to let them know you’re coming (Swanwick Marina 01489 884081; Endeavour Quay Gosport 02392 584200): they will let you know how to access them.
We appreciate your understanding of these measures until we are able to lift them.
We still proudly make all our sails, canvas work, and sub-assemblies in Wareham or Gosport, and we aim to do so for a long time to come: we still share your passion for sailing, and we want to help you get out there!
Arrangements have been made with fabric suppliers that ensures production for virtually all of our confirmed orders. For future orders, we currently foresee no major disruption to our supply lines, and our commitment to high quality and accurate lead times remains unchanged.
In an uncertain world, it’s good to feel one can always head out in to the blue and self-isolate in the calm of your boat... Give us a call to see how we can help improve your season!
Thanks from Rob and all the staff,
