Sailcraft Ltd. (UK)

1967 - 1986

Founded by Reg White MBE, along with designer Rodney March and first began building high performance sailing dinghies. Some time later a partnership was formed with designer Rod Macalpine-Downie that resulted in a series of fiberglass cruising catamarans.
White and March were also responsible for the International TORNADO class which won the 1967 international “B” class trials and was later selected as the 2 man racing catamaran for the Olympics. TORNADO's were first built of plywood but fiberglass construction was soon adopted.
