Ullman Sails Etchells Program

Wed, 1st Apr 2009

Ullman Sails Etchells Program
Etchells Supermodel Spinnaker

Ullman Sails is revamping the Etchells program and raising the bar in the Etchells fleet.  With Eric Shampain (winner of 2008 Worlds), Bucky Smith (winner of 2009 Worlds) and Chuck Skewes (7th at 2008 Worlds) assisting Dave Ullman in a research and development project to make the fastest sails in the class.  This is truly a global project combining information and testing from Australia to Southern California. 

The program will include top non pro sailors as well as the pro sailors from the Ullman Sails Team.  This is not a short term project.  We have been working on it for some time and have stepped up the efforts since we have had great results.  David Clarke out of Sydney sailing “Fifteen” was the Pre Worlds winner in Melbourne Australia.

Look for more Ullman Etchells sails leading the pack this season with the DC main and Jibs as well as the new Supermodel spinnaker.
