Brett Jones

Brett Jones started sailing with his father when he was five years old. Without high school racing teams, Brett competed at local clubs in Sydney, Australia racing year round. Sailing a variety of boats, including cherubs, skiffs, and eventually keel boats, he raced every weekend until he left school.

After graduating high school, Brett learned to be a sail maker and continued to race on the weekends. One of his employers owned an ocean racing boat and invited Brett to join him. One thing led to another, and Brett found himself in the United States and Europe meeting people and competing. His experiences eventually landed him a spot on his first America's Cup team.

After the 2007 America's Cup, Brett decided to expand his experiences even further to make himself a more valuable member of the team. "In the America's Cup, if you're just a sailor you limit yourself," he said. "I had done a lot of development with sail designers, and I thought I could increase my value by having that skill set." Quantum Sails approached Brett about designing with them, and he joined the team in 2008.

Having sailed in several America's Cups and all the classic yacht races, Brett brought his own unique blend of sailing and design experience to the Quantum design team. Working mostly with Soto 40, RC 44, TP 52, IRC classes and various yachts, the combined experiences of Brett and the Quantum team make it possible to provide all of his customers with the best service and sails. "We're one of the more open design groups," he said. "We feed off each other and keep things open. We share designs and information that we can then share with the customers. This helps us influence the sail design and performance of boats to better help our customers."
