When Carles Rodriguez was four years old, his mother worked for a One Design boat company. She started taking him to races on the weekends, and it didn’t take long before Carlos started racing. When he was just 17 years old, the Catalonian Sailing Federation offered him a job, and he’s been sailing ever since.
A professional sailor since 1995, Carlos has an extensive resume, including experience on JV37 Comet, Open 60 Estrella Damm, TP52, X-35, J/80, IMX40, and Sinergia 40. His maxi racing boat experiences include Farr 92 El Baile, Frers 100 Syl, SW72 Kiboko, SW100 Alarife, A&R 100 Arrayan, Vitters 98 Aphrodite, GF105 Only Now, Noorsee 88 Ifalik, Wally 77 Barong, and many other classes.
Carlos started working at a Quantum Sails loft in1996. A well-known brand in Spain, Quantum Sails Spain goes beyond simply selling sails. Carlos not only spends almost every weekend racing in local and national events with Quantum customers, serving as skipper, tactician, and jib-spinnaker-mainsail trimmer, he also trims masts, finds crew members, provides certification optimization, and even services sails during races. At Quantum Sails Spain, Carlos works hard to make it a full-service, one-stop loft for all sailing needs.
