The Farr 40 has become the one of the most popular and competitive Owner/Driver One Design Classes. Regional fleets were set up from the start, and as a result there are strong fleets in Australia, Europe, Italy, Midwest, and the East and West Coasts of the United States.
Doyle Sailmakers has been involved in the Farr 40 Fleet from the beginning. Over the last few years the Offshore One Design Group has focused on the set up, tuning and sail development for the Farr 40. Doyle Sails have proven very fast in the Farr 40 Class with Alberto Signorini's Sylphea dominating the racing in Europe and Phil Dowd's Inferno dominating the racing in the Great Lakes where over ½ of the Great Lakes Fleet is using Doyle sails. Our designs have also won the Australian Nationals.
