Flying Scot Mainsails

Flying Scot All Purpose Mainsail

Designed by gold medalist, Mark Reynolds, the goal of this main design was to maintain a fast light/medium shape, but, through cloth selection and panel layout, to extend its range into stronger wind as well. The main is made from firm and durable 4 oz. cloth. The window, roll bag, numbers, jib leech, viewing window, and racing battens are standard. 

This product may be ordered through your local rep or a class expert.

Chris Schramel

Chris Schramel didn’t start sailing until he was 18 years old, but it looked like fun, so he gave it a try. He sailed throughout college, and the excitement of the competition, the girls, and the adventure of it all got in his blood. In 1975, his passion became his career when he ran a small loft in Martha’s Vineyard.

Chris spent several years with Sobstad before joining the Quantum team as an affiliate loft. With all of Quantum’s resources and experts available to him, Chris not only provides the best service and products available, he also treats his customers as friends, investing his time and talents to help them get the most out of their sailing experiences.

George Szabo

George grew up in San Diego racing Stars, Lasers and Snipes. As a kid, he made sails for his model boats before eventually taking a part-time job with Quantum during high school and college. He came on full-time in 1993 as a sailmaker and designer.

Using the latest computer design programs, George is able to create the fastest, most efficient sails for smaller One Design boats. This technology, combined with his intimate understanding of One Design sailing, allows him to create the most versatile sails available. The San Diego loft designs a variety of One Design sails, including Thistle and Lido 14, but their specialties are Olympic Class Star and Snipe boats.

George is the 2009 Star World Champion, as well as an 21-time National/North American Champion. In addition to his sail-making abilities and wins, he is also an accomplished keelboat tactician and trimmer.
