This summer we're packing up the chandlery shop into the van and joining you on the road, supporting events up and down the country. Our aim at these events, is to keep you on the water racing in the event of gear failure. However, you may wish to pre-order some essentials to be on the safe side.
As we make our final preparations to head south to Alexandra Palace, London for the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show, we are delighted to reveal the Dinghy Show deals from the various brands we represent.
To take advantage of these special offers from the comfort of your own home, please contact the office on 01324 861 756 (the line will forward to our event mobile while we're at the Dinghy Show) or via email [email protected] and we'd be happy to put together a quote for you. Deals are available until the close of business on Monday 6th March.Continue reading

Would you believe, people still wonder what we do?! We have been in business since 2002, working with brands such as Laser, Topper, North Sails, Selden, Marlow, Queensport, Black Diamond Tiller, etc. In 2015, we also set up a sister company - Paddlefast to cater for those wind-free days to satisfy your need to be on the water, whatever the wind conditions!
So in the run up to Christmas, we embarked on a video project to show you a glimpse behind the scenes at Sailingfast. Working alongside Paul Saunders from Paul Saunders Media, we came up with a plan and a film schedule. We also had to think about what we were going to say, the various points we wished to convey and most importantly, what to wear!
2017 is shaping up to be a very exciting year for the team at Sailingfast: for the first time Sailingfast will be exhibiting at the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show on 4-5th March at Alexandra Palace.
While the team have attended on behalf of many manufacturers over the years, this will be the first time exhibiting as Sailingfast.

Excitement levels went through the roof today as Duncan went through to Glasgow Airport to pick up a long thin wooden crate. This WASZP box of bits has travelled halfway across the world and the contents are now being assembled like a complex 3D jigsaw.

The long-range forecast for the Hallowe’en weekend was looking decidedly good for paddleboarding. Less so for sailing! However, some undaunted Laser sailors took to Rutland Water to enjoy the UKLA Laser Inland Championship.
Sailingfast continued their support of the Autumn events. Armed with a fresh delivery of sails for the fleet and the winner of their sail competition. Entries continued coming in on Saturday at registration. We are delighted to announce the lucky winner was 4.7 sailor, Matt Beck.Continue reading
