ODINN - J111
Odinn is a J111 racing on Lake Champlain; Ed Trombley serves as tactician and sail consultant for this boat. Odinn has won many races including the coveted Mayors Cup and The Lake Champlain Yacht Club’s prestigious overall trophy “The Cannon”. The owner works closely with Doyle each spring to discuss sail inventory, strategy, and rig tuning. Odinn uses a full inventory of Stratis sails.
TAHAWAS - AMEL 54 KETCH
Tahawas is a rugged Amel 54 ketch whose owner contacted us for a complete set of Bluewater Triradial Hydranet furling sails. The boat recently completed a three year round-the-world rally with Blue Planet Odyssey raising awareness to climate change and the urgent issues facing our oceans.
This boat was located in Norfolk VA. We stress the fact that we personally measure every boat to provide the best fit and performance and this was no exception; all sails fit perfectly and needed no repairs throughout the entire trip. Hydranet sails are extremely strong and durable and would have been suitable for another 3-year ocean voyage.
ARCADIA - HUNTER 37.5
Arcadia is an extensively cruised Hunter 37.5 fitted with a complete set of Doyle triradial Durasails, Cradle Cover, and a Tides track system. Owners have had several boats and have been exclusive Doyle Lake Champlain customers for over 20 years.
EL SUENO - ERICSON 38
El Sueno is a nice, older Ericson 38 that needed a complete refit. We replaced the running rigging, measured and installed new Durasails, added a Tides track system, a Cradle Cover and lazyjacks, a Selden Rodkicker, new lifelines, and a Forespar vertically-stowed whisker pole. After tuning, this boat sails wonderfully and easily!
LEVANTO - BENETEAU 40
Levanto is a recent Beneteau 40 that required replacements for the original factory-supplied sails. We visited the boat and took extensive measurements, delivered and installed a new Durasail furling mainsail and furling genoa, and after some rig tuning the boat sails better than ever! Let us update your 80’s and newer Beneteau, Jeanneau, Dufour, Catalina, you name it!
Doyle Lake-Champlain is always “On Call” for the local Charter fleets.
