Jorge Ferrero grew up in Buenos Aires in a family that was passionate about sailing. It was from his family that Ferrero learned the craft of sailmaking. He began his career with the American company Hood Sailmakers in Argentina, serving as loft manager for over 20 years. In 2013, Ferrero moved to Germany and founded Sailing Solutions, a production and service facility for the European market.
In 2020, Sailing Solutions became a Quantum Sails-affiliated loft (now known as Quantum Sails Baden-Wurttemberg), specializing in the design, manufacture, and repair of sails. Ferrero’s sail expertise is demonstrated in the many workshops he offers sailors on sailmaking and sail features and in his customers' sails that are regularly tested and optimized at numerous national and international regattas.
Ferrero is an active racer, at home as skipper, helmsman, or sail trimmer in regattas throughout South America and Europe. Racing highlights include multiple Fasnet and Buenos Aires-to-Rio de Janeiro races, ORC Worlds, Farr 30 Worlds, Voiles Saint Tropez, and Rolex Classic Week.
"Quantum Sails Baden-Wurttemberg offers custom solutions to our clients," says Ferrero. "Whether racing or cruising, we understand our customers' needs and are able to support them with the best solution for their sails, equipment, and refits."
