Favourit project:
Nice call. I do not really have a favorite project. I like all of them, because I can see the challenge in it. I really like to work with the sailors, find and understand their needs about sails, sailing styles, conditions. Under this, all the projects were favorites.

1D Inside - Chat with the CEO

A little Q-A with our CEO, Panka about 2015.

Favourit project:
The Formula16 sail optimization before the Europeans. It was a tough project, but we did it in time and its result was visible immediately. I could move on the white table for the last time in this period because of my baby bump ;).

F16 Optimization - The Mainsail

In the last post of optimization I talked about the jib.  Let's see now the main motor, the mainsail.

Everything has started with this sail modification. A team from France asked me to make a more powerful sail for the Europeans. I was thinking a lot which direction to take as I was pretty happy with our first mainsail design. It had a 6 batten.

1D Inside - Chat with the Loft manager

A little Q-A with our loft manager, Deni about 2015.

Favourit project:
For sure,  the Optimist project. The road from the talking to the first generation sails was a great fun. It is a continuous work. We started the designing process with my experience from coaching, I was fully involved in the testing and tuning process, so I feel this project very close to me.
It was a great challenge to compare the materials and designs. Small boat, big challenge.

4th February - 1D Loft 2 - intro

This post is a little bit different, as we have our birthday. It happened exactly one year ago that the One Design Sails brand reborned after several decades of rest.

I have started to work with sails - I can say- a long time ago. There was a point, when everything had a turn into a much higher state. This point was 4th February 2012. On this day, I met with Pablo Soldano to make more deeper our work together. 
It was a really great meeting and something started to change.

F16 Optimization - CHP2k16 Jib

Our F16 sail optimization started around late May, early June 2015 for the Europeans. I have started to write another post about this project it turned out to have different posts to the different sail types.

Let's start it with the jib. The reason I have chosen this sail to start with is very simple. The last version got finished just right before Xmas and headed straightly to France and participating on the Martinique Cata Raid. It was a quite quick project for this sail, the time was far too short for the right and full analysis, we had to built the jib in an absolutely short time.

By the way, the guys, Emmanuel Le Chapier and Théo Constance won the F16 class and got 4th overall, fighting against the F18s.
