Recommended Sailmakers for a Frances 26

Hello,
Can anyone recommend sailmakers that have experience of making sails for the Victoria Yachts range.
I'm looking to get a new staysail made.  I have been in contact with Shore Sails but would be interested if any member can recommend others.
Thank you.

Hi Kevin.
Speak to Peter Saunders - Sanders Sail - Lymington.
He has made sails for the Victoria 34, so wouldn't be surprised that these has also done the same for the Frances 26.
He made me a new stay sail for my V34, but insisted on taking some measurements as he had a couple of sizes on record. That's no bad thing.
Superb sail maker based on my personal experience over 11 years.
Good luck!

Hi Kevin

Sanders made a set of sails for Panache, mast head-sloop, a couple of years ago. Peter came on-board and measured up and his advice on the design and cut was great. Sails are wonderful too.
