Just a quick note to say thanks for the great sails you've delivered for my '98 Com-pac 19XL
The full batten loose foot main, 110% RF jib and 140% RF genoa all fit perfectly and really made the boat come alive. The cuts on the headsails are just right..not too low and not too high with good furling performance. Last month I had the opportunity to sail with several other similar Com-pacs with experience sailors at the helm--we outsailed them all with ease--were able to point better, had less pitch and roll in waves, better speed and better control.
They are holding up great too, after almost one season of sailing once a week, they still are practically new. Better than I can say for others I've used in the past. Also they arrived exactly when you said they would. Excellent product, excellent service..I'll be using you again!!

Cabaret 5 – Mainsail: It all worked well on Thursday morning and I
collected the sail without problem. We used it yesterday and it looked
certainly super – it’s smaller on the roach particularly at the top but I
think it looks better. Everybody was very admiring. The boat was
absolutely clean as well and we achieved 2 good second places – one well
sailed Platu disappeared into the distance in both races leaving us to
scrap with the pack.

I receive (sic) the sails. Your work is perfect. Thanks for all…
(M. Haralampos (Lampis) Athens, Greece)
Thank you for your prompt quote. I have received a number of quotes and you appear very competitive in fact a lot less than some of the others. (Murray, London, England)
Thank you very much for taking care of all the participants in the
regatta. Yanneke Too and myself would like to make a special thanks to
you and your staff. If it were not for the extra time and effort we
would not have been able to accomplish what was needed this week. Again
thank you for taking care of us so promptly. (C. Dywer via email from
Yacht Haven Marina)
We have just left Guatemala and just wanted to drop you a line to tell
you that the sails are perfect. Thanks for all your help and patience.
Maybe we will meet one day. (A. Apostolopoulos – Cruising the world)
Dear Rolly, Once again we would like to thank you for your help and
support during our stay in Phuket. As usual, you have shown us great
service, prompt time keeping, professional conduct and impeccable work
standards which we have come to expect from your company. Please extend
our thanks to the staff and management of Rolly Tasker’s. We look
forward to doing business with you in the near future. (Captain Charles
Dwyer and the crew of “Yanneke Too” via Letter at Yacht Haven Marina)
I am pleased with the quality of materials and workmanship as well as the fit. AND your company was about $200 cheaper than anyone else I could find, on the internet or otherwise. Most sailors are NOT independently wealthy (contrary to popular opinion) and I am spreading the word about your fine company. (Dirk (newsails) Fort Myers Florida USA)
Thank you very much for the fast action taken, the last two items is nice to deliver from RTS product line.
(C. Hiersemann – Sweden)
Thank you for good work.
(T. Wang – Sweden)
Sails are great and everyone seems to be happy!! Received the numbers and slides, thank you.
(Monica – Valencia Spain)
Managed to fit and try the sails yesterday and all I can say from first
impressions is that we are very pleased! The sails set well, much easier
to hoist, no wrinkling in the luff and no flapping in the roach. We
thought the battens might be a bit light but had a good opportunity to
put them through their paces in a good blow yesterday of 15-17 knots
with gusts to 18+. Once we all set up we decided to put her through her
paces and really push her. The maximum speed we saw was 16.9 knots close
reaching in 17-18 knots of wind. (Samui Yachting Thailand)
The Australian Beneteau agent sailed on the two Beneteau 57s in France
last week for which you built the sails. He said that they were
fantastic, especially the tri radial cruiselams on Kinnane’s boat while
the furling main on Bakewells was very good. (S & G Newton Sail
Solutions – Sydney Australia)
Received the sails. Look great – thanks very much, good service. Sure we’ll be back for more.
(Robert – Pacific Resorts)
You will be glad to learn we won the passage race (only one other
finished some 5 hours behind with higher handicap) also the Pangkor Laut
Resort Merdeke Trophy – around Pengkor island. We are also on track to
retain the seasons points trophy. Good for Tasker Sails! (Jeremy Camps –
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia)
Many thanks for the sails sent the other day. They looked great and we
hope to be sending more to you soon.
(Sailmaker, Queensland Australia)
The sail arrived last week and test sailed it on the weekend. We are
very happy. Hope to do more business with you in the future. (Client,
This is confirmed by (World Record Holder) Jon SANDERS & as said to Rolly on Jon’s return in 1988 from triple non stop circum navigation of the globe (71,023 nautical miles).
“These Rolly Tasker sails were used non stop around the world three times, and they are still in good enough condition for another world circum navigation.” JON SANDERS AO, OBE, CitWA These same sails are now on display with Jon’s boat Parry Endeavour at the Fremantle Maritime Museum in Western Australia.
S.Y. Albatros (Swan 62) still with its original suit of sails and
spinnaker from 2002 again won its class over 60 feet in the Arc rally. Albatros has now made 7 Atlantic crossings, 5 of them regattas include
the Daimler Chrysler north Atlantic rally and Arc rally 2002, 2003,
2004, 2005 winning in 2003 and 2005. (M. Synge)
Your sails look very good after 8,000 miles! Looking forward to meet you
again this winter in Phuket.
(G. Gritsis, Athens, Greece - 17/10/05)
You’ll be interested to know that the mainsail and genoa are branded
Rolly Tasker Sails and dated 1963 and 1964. I hoisted the sails on
Flying Dutchman class yacht KA-100. They are absolutely flawless.
They look virtually the same as the day you made them. Quite a tribute
for sails that have been raced for a few seasons during the intervening
42 years. (B. McConke – Queensland Maritime Museum)
