Quantum Sails Ireland Offer 15% Summer Discount

2nd June 2020

In a normal year sailmakers would be offering autumn /winter discounts. However this COVID-19 year is no normal year. Quantum Sails understands that owners may not get as much use out of their boats this year, but still have a need for some new sails. Now, rather than waiting for 2021 to use new sails purchased with the winter discounts, sails can be bought and used in late 2020, still with the advantage of a substantial discount.

Quantum Sails Ireland (Mark Mansfield/Yannick Lemonnier) are available to discuss any needs that owner have, whether it is a Cruising Dacron or laminate sail, or a top of the range Fusion Racing sail—like the below photo of a J109. Quantum have won two of the last 3 years J109 North American Championships, where the J109 is extremely popular.

This 15% discount is available for sails purchased up to the 15th of July. Delivery time is approximately six weeks from order, so sails ordered today would arrive mid-July, likely just in time for the resumption of racing this year (we hope).

If your interest is in cruising or long distance racing, Yannick Lemonnier has years of experience in this area and would be ideally suited to assist. If racing is your thing, four time Olympian and Top Professional sailor, Mark Mansfield, will be on hand to help work up your boat for the season.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open. is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
