16 years of supporting Sail Port Stephens
For the past 16 years, Greg Newton and his crew have competed in every Sail Port Stephens Regatta in a range of Beneteau yachts, all known as Antipodes. Initially there was his first Beneteau, a 42s7, then a First 47.7 which enjoyed many podium results up and down the east coast, followed by an Oceanis 523 and more recently, the Oceanis 45.
And as co-owner and Director of Rolly Tasker Sails Australia & New Zealand, Greg has also been a long-running and ardent supporter of the event, providing document sleeves, sail bag prizes and sail discounts for all competitors and crew.
As has been the case for some years, many of the yachts participating in 2024 Sail Port Stephens will carry a Rolly Tasker sail or full sail inventory such as Dean Dransfield’s Beneteau Escape.
Over the years, Rolly Tasker has also been a product innovator. Its range of dark grey Dimension Polyant Lite Skin upwind sails are a great combination of top performance and looks at a competitive price.
More recently, you’ll see a number of yachts carrying a furling Code C sail, which was developed by Rolly Tasker as a reaching and running sail, essentially a mixture of a Code O and an asymmetrical spinnaker. This type of sail is ideal for short-handed sailors, where performance/ease of use is paramount.
Catch up with Greg while at this year’s event to talk about your needs further and how Rolly Tasker Sails can assist with premium sail cloth and full CAD design at prices that won’t break the bank. It may be just a new Lazy Jack Boom Bag, a replacement spinnaker, or a high-performance wardrobe. Whatever your needs, Rolly Tasker Sails can assist.
