Great Feedback from a new UK TEXAS customer

We had the opportunity to design and build an X Drive Carbon Genoa backed with light taffeta for a newly delivered Hanse 455. The owner, Ted Greak was excited to have his boat ready for Harvest Moon but wanted a jib geared more towards racing rather than cruising. The new jib was delivered with time to spare and EDELWEISS went on to win her division and Ted earned a spot for his name on the Cannon Perpetual trophy which honors best corrected time in the Cruising Non Spinnaker Fleet. 

Ted was obviously thrilled with the results from Harvest Moon. He's an experienced and knowledgeable sailor but he made a point to recognizes the hard work the team at UK TEXAS invested in his sail. Mr. Greak said, "The new UK jib for our new boat was an excellent addition and was delivered just in time for the Harvest Moon Regatta. We used the UK jib the entire race. We finished the HMR in first place in our division. Thanks for taking the time to make certain the sail was correctly designed and fitted to out boat. And thanks too for taking the time to sail with us in order to acquaint the crew to the new sail addition". Any time, Ted. Congratulations!
