Today, Doyle Sails announces that legendary sailmaker and sailor Moose McClintock is joining the team at Doyle Sails North America.
David McClintock, known worldwide as Moose McClintock, has joined the team at Doyle Sails, and will be based out of the new Sales and Service office in Newport, Rhode Island - the hub of North American sailing. McClintock brings a wide range of knowledge from over 30 years of professional sailing and sailmaking to the team, and McClintock’s hands-on knowledge will be an immediate asset for Doyle’s customers. He has won six J24 World Championships, three J24 North American Championships, three J24 National Championships, a J-22 World Championship, a Swan World Championship, and was 2nd in both the 1995 America’s Cup Defender Trials with Young America and the 2000 America’s Cup Louis Vuitton Series on AmericaOne.
Prior to joining Doyle, McClintock worked for Dimension-Polyant, the world’s leading sailcloth producer for 16 years giving him extraordinary knowledge in the technical aspects of sailcloth and sailmaking.
Moose McClintock comments,
" I’m extremely happy to have ended up with Doyle Sails. For much of the last few years I have worked closely with most of the Doyle lofts in North America and have seen the wide range of projects they are tackling as a group with growing success in One Design, Superyachts and grand-prix racing programs alike. After spending time in the office and seeing the work that goes into designing, engineering and building these sails, I have a new appreciation for the level of sophistication with which Doyle operates. Looking at One Design specifically, winning the J/70 Worlds for two years in a row is a testament to the quality of the design and materials Doyle is utilizing, and I am eager to ensure that the many customers of Doyle can reach a similar level of success."
The timing is excellent for McClintock to join Doyle linking in with recent addition Tony Rey in Newport in order to ensure that the office is ready to serve customers in Newport come the busy season this Spring. With Newport being a center for both One Design and grand-prix customers alike, it is an ideal location for McClintock to spend time helping customers make the most out of their sail programs and time on the water.
Robbie Doyle, founder of Doyle Sails comments:
"As we’ve grown in the last few years, we are always in need of smart sailors, who can get on any boat, get the boat set up properly and push to get the most performance possible out of the sails. Moose is one of the rare people that I have known for years, who consistently pushes boats to the front of the fleet. Having him in Newport, where so many of our international superyacht customers come through and the elite of the world come to race, is a huge win for all Doyle’s customers."
