Area sailors know Randy St Jacques from the race course as well as boat shows
UK Sailmakers is re-opening in Ontario under the ownership of long time Canadian sailor Randy St. Jacques. Randy has 50 years of experience both racing and cruising on many boats. He is a very busy racer himself and active in the FPSC Fifty Point Sailing Club and in PHRF-LO with a C&C 30 MkII at Fifty Point.
For the last ten years Randy as sold sails for several brands, but has now moved to UK Sailmakers. It has been a year since Brian Chapman unexpectedly passed away leaving Toronto sailors at a loss. “Brian Chapman set the bar incredibly high for quality sails and service,” says Randy. “He will be a tough act to follow and I hope that I can live up to the expectations he created with sailors on Lake Ontario.”
Randy is currently finalizing plans for a service facility in the GTA and looks forward to big things for the UK Sailmakers brand in the area. “I’ve been a sail buyer as well as a sail seller, so I know what’s important to 25-40 footer sailors.”
