The Doyle Sails New Zealand team are big fans of the F-22 model developed by Ian Farrier. We have been working with Ian for some time now, with Doyle sails on board the first intial concept versions of the model [read more here]. A full set of Doyle Sails will be on board the first production model, which is due to launch imminently once the final prototype has been signed off. Doyle is also working on finalising the sail inventories for boats two and three.
The model is already seeing huge interest, with more than 70 orders placed and significant investment into production facilities, and Doyle Sails is very proud of their association with this exciting design programme. Ian has been keeping a fantastic blog of the progress of work on the prototype model – click here for the blog – and Chris McMaster, MD of Doyle Sails NZ, will soon be joining Ian for sail trials in the coming weeks.
