The Super Spars Difference

Putting the sailor at the centre of their sailing performance

Matching the following:

Sailor Weight and Size

Sailor Ability


Sailing Location/Water Type

Wind Conditions

It is vital to get the very best out of your rig. Sailors often need help to pick their way through the minefield of different mast combinations. Sailors are often left to grasping the nettle only to learn that there is a more suitable solution later.

At Super Spars we believe sailors should be at the centre of the decision process, treated as an individual and matched to a winning package of mast and sail, starting with the rig design. There is currently a tendency for the sailor to be shoehorned into a solution that will not meet his/her expectations.

It is little wonder that so many of ‘traditional’ racing classes have struggled in the face of offerings from the Single Manufacturer One Designs. How much simpler to just have no choice at all and just sail with the gear provided, even if this too is not right.

Clearly, ‘One size does not fit all!

That has to be why the ‘traditional classes’ are still seen as the natural home of innovation and development in the dinghy sailing world. Classes such as the Merlin Rocket and International 14 have maintained their perception that they are at the leading edge, but it should not be forgotten that stalwarts such as the Flying Fifteen, Enterprise and GP14 have still evolved a range of developments in sail and mast technology that hasn’t currently been fully exploited.
