The CD Sails is the new international sailmaking brand founded by Claudio Demartis.
He began racing at a young age having many successes at national and international level, first in dinghies and then in the offshore categories. He has won 3 world championships, 4 «Giro d'Italia» races, as well as numerous other national titles.
Besides being a sailor of success, he started to design and produce sails already in 1976, before founding the world-known sail loft Olimpic Sails where his sails achieved many victories in all the classes.
During his career he had a chance to share his experience with many young sailors. This contribution has helped and still today helps them to win the most important races in the world
As a general manager, he also gave a significant contribution to the development of the world’s largest regatta, the Barcolana, as well as created other events and projects of success.
The CD Sails is the result of more than 40 years unique personal world winning racing and sails making experience which allows us to create the high performing Optimist, cruising and racing sails.
The 500square meter sail loft in Monfalcone is organized to make only Optimist sails with strictly defined production process and special work stations for each production stage.
All sails are assembled only by Claudio Demartis, assuring the ‘same hand, same eye’ in the very delicate assembly process. This level of attention and organization are one of the pillars that assure already proven performance and quality.
After being founded at 2019, CD Sails are already present in more than 30 countries, are chosen by TOP level sailors and have achieved first places in numerous national and international regattas including podiums in most important Optimist events- World Championship, European Championship, Asian&Oceanian Championship and other races.
In numerous countries CD Sails is already recognized as one of 3 top of mind choices for the Optimist sails.
CD Sails have studied and are providing 4 models that are covering main weight ranges. Defined amount of models allows to orientate easily between the right models for coaches and sailors and eases up the stock management for our partners.
Thanks to the unique personal experience of Claudio as sailor and sailmaker, in CD Sails we know how long and difficult is the path to become a champion. And we wish to give our contribution to the success of the young OPTIMIST sailors by creating the most powerful and high-performing sails and sharing our experience in our CD Sails Academy.
The deeply personal story is the reason why we strive to make the sails that are truly helping you to be faster and better. This is why we are always opened and reachable at any time to answer your questions and support you from a distance or by sailing together.
Because we have really experienced - how much it's hard to learn, how much it's fun to sail and compete, and how much it’s cool to win.
