Have a look at our Cruising Chutes page; you can filter by colour, sail area, luff and foot length. There are also some reductions here, just in time for that Christmas present!

With strong winds and heavy snow forecast, now may be the time to begin ordering your winter covers to provide exceptional protection for your much loved vessel.

Forecasters are predicting that Britain will soon be enjoying Mediterranean style weather!!. Hopefully they are correct. Have you thought about how you can protect yourself from the sun and enjoy the warm weather; both afloat on your boat or at home in your garden?

Summer!!

Our May newsletter may help you in your choice of products that are available to improve your Summer!

The Information Sheets page on our website has been updated. It is now easier to read and find what you want, and 2 new writable PDF self measurement forms have been added, Dodgers/Boom Tent and Sailcover/Pack-a-Main. These forms can be downloaded, information added and then can be emailed back to us with your sizes, no need to print these 2 forms now!

We are always improving our website with information and content. Keep coming back, you'll be surprised on what you can find here.... 

The forecasters are saying that Spring may just be around the corner.!!  You know what that means.....yes, Easter holidays, boat back in the water, planning cruises and rallies for the Summer, etc. Here at C&J we're always one season ahead and we are already planning for the Summer. We are building up stocks of Sun Awnings and Cruising Chutes ready for when our customers need them. With a bit of notice Bimini's can also be made, but don't leave it too long.

Don't forget our range of products for your garden as well.

Enjoy the sunshine!!

Spring , Seasons

Over the last 2 or 3 years the demand for Bimini Enclosure style canopies has been on the increase.

The obvious benefits are for all to see; a combination of a Bimini and a Cockpit Enclosure using 1 set of framework. You don’t need 2 separate Bimini and Cockpit Enclosures, with 2 sets of frames. The Bimini element can be quickly transformed into a lovely protective cover. Ideal in the climate we experience in the UK, lots of wind and rain with the occasional week of really hot glorious sunshine!!

However, a word of warning here…..as yachts get larger, so does the canvas work. This could lead to more windage, more surface area for rain, snow and ice to collect on and subsequently some areas for concern regarding the functionality of this canopy style.

During winter when your beloved yacht is not being used, naturally a Bimini Enclosure could be left in-situ protecting the cockpit; it makes sense. But….as some of our customers do not live locally to their yachts this can cause other issues as you may not be able to get down to your yacht to remove the Bimini/Enclosure before the bad weather arrives. On larger yachts, it is not recommended that these hefty Bimini Enclosures are left up in adverse weather; you wouldn’t leave your sails up in a force 10, would you??

Our list of new and used sails has been updated. We've had a few additions that could be interesting.....
