Martin Winter

Martin Winter

Martin Winter started sailing with his father and grandfather when he was eight years old. By age ten, he was racing Optis, then P-class boats. Soon he was competing at national and international regattas.

A sailmaker by trade, Martin knows many people in the sailing world, and one of those connections introduced him to the Quantum Racing team. Traveling with them as their on-site sailmaker, Martin handles all of their sail care needs, including building new sails and maintaining their current ones.

The standards for working with Quantum Racing are high, but Martin appreciates the challenge and dedication to improving. "My favorite part of being part of the team is that we're always developing, always looking for something extra," he said. "We work to a high standard and keep improving from year to year."

Antoine Thuillier

Antoine's father shared his passion for sailing with his son at a young age. They sailed their old 420 on Île de Ré near La Rochelle on the west coast of France. After brief studies at business school, Antoine understood that his personal and professional path would be intertwined with the sea and sport of sailing. At age 20, a friend asked Antoine to help deliver a boat in the Caribbean, and that is when he decided to dedicate his life to sailing.


When he returned to France after the delivery, Antoine began working in a small local sail loft, where he fell in love with sailmaking on the first day. "The pursuit of finding the perfect sail was a beautiful way to express myself," says Antoine. "Lighter fabric, better shape, so many aspects to create and improve upon to." Antoine had the opportunity to work with Incidence Sails to build two sets of sails for a competitor in the Trophe Jules Vernes. Collaborating with Maxime Paul on this project was "magical, and my passion for the profession grew."


In 2005 Antoine moved to Quantum Sails Barcelona where he was exposed to the international sailmaking industry. He was able to collaborate and learn from top designers and sailmakers from all over the world and enjoyed the focus of high-quality and high-performance that these professionals placed on sailmaking.


Antoine moved to Palma de Mallorca in 2006 as a loft manager and discovered the super yacht world. He built and fit sails for Dubois, Perinis, and Wallys to name a few, and traveled to the biggest European shipyards and marinas. Antoine also competed on big boats as a sailmaker and professional crew member and expanded his network with international professional sailors. "Everything about super yachts fascinated me−the size of the tools, rigs, and sails."


In 2013, he launched Palm Sails and, with his own small company, started to service and build big boats sails. "Joining Quantum Sails was an obvious next step for me," he says, "To be able to offer the highest quality sails for superyachts and maxis and to be a part of a worldwide team with the greatest expertise is the culmination of my career. I have worked with many Quantum team members over the years, and now I feel as though I am coming back to family."


"I am proud to offer all my customers the expertise, the right product, and the support of a worldwide team leading many areas of the high-performance market. I am excited to merge my intimate knowledge of big boats and the superior design technology at Quantum to create superior products. Based in the Mediterranean, I will represent Quantum Sails in Palma de Mallorca and at big boats racing events as well as assist Quantum sailmakers on big sails projects, measuring, manufacturing, fitting, and testing sails."

Jordi Calafat

Jordi Calafat started sailing in 1980, and, in just three years, he won the Optimist World Championship. A naturally talented sailor, his success continued when he won the 1985 420 Junior World Championship, placed second at the 470 Worlds in 1989 and 1990, then took sixth at the 1991 470 Worlds. The lower finish didn’t deter him, however; it inspired him. In 1992, Jordi won a gold medal in the 470 class at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona. He also holds several world and European titles in various sailing classes and keel yachts.

The more Jordi sailed, the more hands-on he became. In 1989, he started designing sails. A Grand Prix and high-end sail design specialist with Quantum Sails, Jordi designs sails, provides technical support to the Quantum sales teams, and contributes to the development of Quantum’s iQ Technology™ suite of computational tools. Jordi's distinguished career makes him an ideal candidate for working with quality control managers in establishing standards for big boat and Grand Prix sail programs. Jordi serves as strategist for the Quantum Racing team and contributes to the Grand Prix sail designs for the team.
