Jorge Ferrero

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."

Theo Streckenbach

Theo Streckenbach's first sailing experiences were on his family's small boat, sailing many summers along the Baltic, Danish, and Swedish coasts with his family. He quickly realized he was passionate about sailing and joined the local club’s sailing program in his hometown of Greifswald, Germany. He started in the Optimist class, and recalls that the shape and sails were "spot on" even though they weren’t Quantum Sails. After sailing various dinghy classes, he progressed to keelboats, all the while learning a lot and racing in programs throughout Northern Europe.

Theo's passion for sailing extended to a passion for sailmaking, which took him overseas to work as a sailmaker for North Sails, OneSails, and Hood Sails in Australia and New Zealand. During this time, Theo raced numerous regattas in Australia, New Zealand, and Asia, including two Sydney Hobart Races and many Blue Water Series races. He met amazing people and was privileged to race on different TP52s, a Carkeek47, and fast 40-footers.

His desire to go to university took him to go back to Germany where he earned an engineering degree. But his studies didn’t stop him from working on boats. Theo continued to race around the Baltic and Mediterranean, enlisting all his sailing, sailmaking, and boat prep skills.

Theo is looking forward to an eventful 2023 season that will include a Transatlantic Race, Carribean600, Rolex Fastnet Race, and the ORCi Worlds. He'll race the Transat and C600 on a Maxi and the Fastnet Race and the ORCi Worlds on a 52. Theo feels lucky to be part of such great programs and, especially, to have joined Quantum Sails in 2022, working alongside Jorge Ferrero at Quantum Sails North East Germany based in Greifswald. "A Quantum loft in Greifswald will be of great value for everyone in this area and also for sailors throughout Germany."
