second- Carr sails.

I've bought two sets, one for a Victoria and a 1M set. Both are awesome and the customer service is top notch.

If you have any questions just call and talk to Rod, he'll help you decide the best sail for your application.

I bought my Victoria sails from this site. Beautiful workmanship, got them about a week after ordering along with quite a few of their fittings such as mast/booms, boom vang, deck fittings. You'll end up with a very professional looking boat and it will PERFORM!
Nope, don't work for them, just a happy customer.

Longbow yachts....ALL the best parts to make the V go fast(you should see what he's workng on,way cool)....He,James also has FAST sails(wait till you see the new tri batten jib) which most of the V's in the Okanagan use. Side note there are 80 Victoria's in the Okanagan area hence the best builders/sailmakers and sailers.

Sounds like some smack talk! How many are top ten ranked? We have about 5 active Vic/IOM sailors in the area, with 3 ranked top ten. Houston area also has a small number of sailors, but 3 in the top ten. Large numbers don't necessarily equate to "the best"!

That being said, 80 Vic sailors is impressive! I wish we could get more of the 25-30 owners in this area to come out and sail with us. Maybe we could get better then!

sails

Consider seriously the Sirius sails. Have sailed them for a while, IMHO they are
the best Vic sails of the market.
