Yeah, I got to visit their operation a few years ago (before the new building). It was like a ballet the way those Thai women moved Kevlar around on the floor. Amazing!

We bought a new Rolly Tasker main this year and the fit and finish is exeptional, and they delivered when promised. Plan on buying a new genoa from them next year.

I have to admit I am not a very knolagable sailor when it comes to brand names and who supplies what for whom under whos name...Never been in my genes to care about such matters..But still you would have thought I would have heard of them after 35 years of being around boats...I never had.

Must be part ostridge I guess...

Rolly Tasker has been making sails for about 50 years in Australia from what I read. Could remember wrong!

Rolly Tasker has over 60 years experience in sailing, and “iiii” remembers correctly:

I've

I've owned 8-10 Rolly Tasker cruising sails over the years and they are a very well built and finished product. I purchased all of them through Dirk at National Sail Supply in Florida. I will continue to buy them as they represent a tremendous value in a cruising sail..

RT makes a lot of sails for the larger sailmakers, so although you may not have heard the name, you may be using their sails! I got a main and jib for the Catalina a couple years ago and love them. Very good quality.
