We are proud of our seemingly simple idea of painting Fine Art onto Sails, having captured the imagination and passion of both world class artists and championship sailors, creating an exhilarating and unprecedented "moving gallery"
of contemporary art.

Our Olympic Star class boats competed in the 2014 edition of the Fine Art Sails Regatta, which was held at the premier Cowes location in front of the Royal Yacht Squadron during Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week, the largest sailing event of its kind in the world.
Andrew was truly inspirational when he spoke at the Fine Art Sails launch event in London. He was a big part of our inaugural London Regatta. The Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation was set up to commemorate his life and Fine Art Sails has committed to contribute and support the Foundation. One of the first Fine Art Sails, by artist Pam Glew, was auctioned at the Foundation's San Francisco Fundraiser, achieving an exceptional £14,000..
