Hyde Sails has announced the appointment of Dave Hall as One-Design Sales Manager.

Dave Hall is a well respected and popular sailor and sailmaker who has had succesful roles at Ovington Boats and also, in the past, at Hyde Sails!

Hyde, which this year celebrates its 50th anniversary, used to be the dominant force in UK One Design dinghy racing in the 1970s and 80s. Over the years and in response to changing trends, they moved on to concentrate on making yacht sails and sails for the new generation of Manufacturers One Designs and continue to be the largest sailmaker in the world in this sector. The more traditional classes have however continued to thrive and many of them have experienced a significant resurgence in popularity and support. Hyde plans to make a significant drive to reclaim some of this business at both national and international level, spearheaded by Hall.

Hall is a successful sailor who has won many National and International Trophys campaigning both dinghies and keelboats. He will be at the Dinghy Exhibition on the Fireball stand with his own boat and the latest suit of Hyde Fireball sails! He will be looking out for talented sailors in key classes to help him and sail designer Richard Lovering to develop and promote the company's sails. He will also be offering special discounts and packages for certain classes for this season.
