Ben Kelly

Ben Kelly started sailing 20 years ago at the club, state and national levels, enjoying success in various dinghy and skiff classes. Over the years he explored a wide range of boats, but his passion became multihull sailing. A competitive sailor, he was a member of the crew for eight national multihull titles, holds four distance race records, and has won several regattas. The highlight of his sailing career came when he joined the crew of the Orma 60 Trimaran Team Australia, setting a WSSR record from Sydney to Auckland in 2013.

An experienced sailmaker, Ben started his own sailmaking business in 2004 and joined the team at Quantum Australia in 2012. With a passion for sail design and engineering, he enjoys his work with Quantum Sails’ design team, saying “Quantum’s transparency and the combined knowledge base of our group is a fantastic tool for achieving great results for my customers.”
