Claudio Demartis

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.

CD Sails

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, Onedesing, cruising and racing sails.

Thanks to this unique personal experience, 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.

This is why every sail is authentic work- designed and elaborated in every detail, to assure the best performance. 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.
