Chris Owen

Chris started sailmaking in 1976 at Storrar and Bax in Newcastle, and then with McNamara Sails making both dinghy and keelboat sails, enjoying success at National and World Championship levels.

In 1984 he left to set up Owen Sails in Scotland, using SMSW design software, built into the largest loft in Scotland employing 16 staff. He has always been looking at sail design software as a means of improving sails from a design and production point of view. Chris started using AzureProject software in August 2010.

In 2011 he left Owen Sails to set up Sail Trim Coach and Chris Owen Sail Design. In 2013 he is still with Sail Trim Coach and is also Shore manager for 49er Olympic team, Stevie Morrison and Ben Rhodes
