Want to own a piece of SV Delos history? We created these awesome and durable sail bags using some of the material from our retired Mizzen Sail from Delos. They are perfect for your beach gear, shopping, and we’ve even used ours as an airplane carry on. If you are looking for a unique holiday gift for your family, or even yourself, and want to get ahead of the Black Friday shopping madness here you go!
Each of the bags feature a portion of the sail signed by myself, Alex, Brady, and Kazza and were hand fabricated to our specs from our friends at Precision Sails. I think they make a great holiday gift.. The story of the sail and bags is below. Fair winds and sending much love- Capt. Brian
We put our trusty Mizzen Sail on Delos in Australia, way back when we first started making videos in fact. This awesome sail has about about 50,000 hard ocean miles on it and has sailed through Asia, across the Indian Ocean, around the Cape of Good Hope (3 times!), across the Atlantic, and finally through Brazil and up the coast of South America until we reached the Caribbean. After many years of hard use we finally retired her! We just couldn’t bear the thought of discarding such a fantastic piece of our history so we decided to divide the sail into sections, sign them all, and work with Precision Sails to create some really fantastic sail bags!
You might be wondering, given all this use is the material still in good condition? The answer is yes, absolutely! The original sail is the front, visible portion of the bag where we signed and the rest is made from new, high quality Dacron. The bags are extremely well made and we even kept a few onboard Delos for ourselves. We use them all the time to grab groceries, head to the beach, and even as an airplane carry on.
