Cameron Appleton

When it comes to sailing, Cameron Appleton was a late bloomer, at least by New Zealand standards. “Kids usually start sailing when they’re around six,” says Cameron. “I started when I was 10.”

Once he started, however, Cameron progressed in the sport. His early racing experiences included racing with his younger sister, “which was great education in learning how to work with your sibling!” After winning the International Coca Cola International Youth Match Racing in 1996, Cameron was recognized for his potential as a sailor and was invited to join Team New Zealand in 1997. At the time Cameron was one of the youngest members on the team, but he steadily worked his way up the ranks and was a member of the team when it won the America’s Cup in 2000. He has competed in every owner-driver class and achieved success in many of them. And then came the opportunity to join Quantum Racing.

Cameron’s involvement in Quantum Racing came about due to Terry Hutchinson moving to the American Magic Cup Challenge. “Ed Reynolds and I have always had a respectful relationship about where we fit in the sailing world,” says Cameron, “and he saw in me a great fit working alongside Ed Baird and the team.”

Cameron is a natural choice on the Quantum Racing team. He has spent over 12 years sailing with owner-driver teams and has been sailing against Ed in Match Racing since he was 18 years old. Now “it’s going to be great to sail with one of the finest helmsman in the sport and with a great team and exceptional program.”

Adrien de Belloy

Adrien de Belloy started sailing at four years old, traveling around the North Atlantic with his parents on a boat they built themselves. As a family, they spent a year sailing across the Atlantic, from France to the Caribbean to New York and back. By the time Adrien was 12, he’d moved on to competitive racing. “I loved the sense of freedom, responsibility, team work and being out in nature,” he said. “Nowadays I still love reaching to the horizon and the technical aspect of it. I’m always searching for a way to go faster and trim better.”

With a degree in yacht and powercraft design from Southampton Solent University, Adrien joined Quantum Sails Barcelona as a sail designer in 2007. He left the loft in 2010 to work as a self-contractor for Quantum while he built the boat he and his wife sailed around the world, covering 44,000 miles from 2011-2013. He continues to design for Quantum at the France loft, and is back to racing IRC, Soto 40, and more.

Designing sails for everything from dinghies to super yachts, racers to cruisers, Adrien loves his work. “I love the never-ending improvement,” he said. “Getting to see my designs at sea, then analyzing them to keep on adapting to every situation.”

Working with the team at Quantum gives him the support and resources he needs to design the best sail for every sailor. “Working for Quantum means being part of a great team that is aiming for success at every endeavor,” said Adrien. “We work twice as hard to prove that we are ready for the next challenge.”

Marco Savelli

Marco Savelli grew up in Livorno, Italy, near Tuscany, and still lives there today. He began sailing Snipes when he was 10 and continued on to win four National Championships and one European Championship in the class.

He pursued a law degree at Florence University, but quickly realized his passion was sailing. So, he started an Olympic campaign in the Flying Dutchman Class and competed in the 1980 Olympics. In 1981, he finished third in the Flying Dutchman World Championship. During this time, he also began working as a sailmaker and sail designer.

Savelli proudly worked as the principal sail designer for the America's Cup Challenger Mascalzone Latino during two campaigns. He currently serves as the vice president of the Mascalzone Latino team. During his years as a sail designer and coach, he won many races, including the Quarter Ton Cup, Melges 24 World Championship, ORC World Championship, and Rolex Middle Sea Race.

In the early 2000s, Savelli applied his sailing and industry knowledge to develop and patent a one-piece continuous yarn membrane for sailmaking. In 2017, he patented a type of monolithic membrane build process. Savelli is excited to bring his wealth of sailing, sail design, and sailmaking knowledge to Quantum Sails.

Andrew Estcourt

Andrew Estcourt started sailing Optimists in Napier, New Zealand, when he was eight years old, continued through the dinghy circuit, winning the Tanner Cup in 1990, and regularly competed in regattas all over the country. Andrew is a graduate of the prestigious RNZYS youth program, where he skippered a team to victory in the 1994 Governor's Cup. In 2003, after a stint in Olympic classes in which Andrew campaigned a 49er with crew Jon Bilger, Andrew became part of the OneWorld America's Cup campaign in Auckland. This experience gave him valuable exposure to all areas of a major sailing program. After the OneWorld campaign, Andrew sailed the World Match Racing Tour and other keelboat circuits.

Andrew's success in small keelboats goes back a long way to Melges 24s and larger one-design classes such as Melges 32s, Farr 40s, and RC44s. Today, most people think of Andrew as a mainsheet trimmer who is able to help owners and helms get the best performance out of their boats.

One of the original crew onboard the successful RC44 Team Aqua, Andrew's winning resume includes five tour championships and world titles, making him one of the sport’s leading trimmers. His extensive knowledge has made a significant impact on teams in the TP52 Super Series.

More recently, Andrew has been focused on the RC44 and TP52 classes, in which he's benefited from involvement with Quantum's iQ technology. "The information flow and technology with Quantum is topnotch, and I am looking forward to working more closely with the company." Andrew's knowledge of a number of competitive platforms gives him the perfect background and education to help sailors with their sail design needs.
