Carbon Sailing started because we needed a new spinnaker pole for the use on our sailing ship FF-WEG.
We, Rob Schild and Shirley van den Kolk, are both fanatic and experienced sailors and proud owner of a Bavaria 33.
On a Saturday afternoon in October 2016, after making some rough sketches, we started designing a first aluminium end-pole for our own spinnaker pole.
Then we created the programs in Cad-Cam and put the machine ready for the first series of aluminum end pieces. www.ferrofijnmechanica.nl
In each port where we came we received positive and enthusiastic responses from interested sailors we met. The result, we realized that a tough, unique and high quality product had been created in our own design and making
Then Rob, who has been for 18 years a self-employed director and owner of precision mechanical workshop, Ferro Fijnmechanica, realized that his great passion and profession can perfectly meet in this way.
Combining this knowledge and experience with Shirley’s many years of experience in various senior management functions in the field of service and commercialization resulted in the idea of “Carbon Sailing”.
Prudently advertising on Marketplace and Instagram taught us that there was a market and we decided to start up, and Carbon Sailing became a fact!
Rob puts his (sail) experience, technical knowledge and skills into making great products. Shirley is responsible for the back office and after sales. Both enthusiastic, proud and focused on the wishes of our customer.
We think it’s important to have personal contact, to properly discuss what your expectations and wishes are and to fine-tune you with how we can contribute to a product that fully meets your watersports needs.
