The St. Kilda Challenge team are delighted to welcome Jeckells the Sailmakers as race sponsor for the 2018 passage race. With over 185 years of sailmaking experience this family run business provides industry leading levels of craftsmanship and customer service to the UK market and beyond. With leading edge technology and materials at the forefront of service provision and a "can do" approach to business we are proud to have them join as race sponsor for the passage race.
Chris Jeckells commented “We are pleased to be associated with the St. Kilda Challenge passage race and hope this may be the first of many in years to come”. Participants in the St. Kilda Challenge 2018 will also have the opportunity to see Jeckells work on the first ever Clipper 60 Ocean racing yacht, Taeping who is participating in the Jeckells sponsored passage race."
