Despite being a new name in the world of Cherubs Mike Lennon’s designs have been winning in the class for a number of years now. Back in 2006 Mike was designing the sails for Deamon Cherub and the “GT60” in the lead up to the ISAF ladies skiff trial in Hyeres France. Mike was also asked to the design work on the International 14 ISAF rig and the RS800 ISAF RIG for the same trial! The design Mike developed later, based on the GT60 for Pete Barton, went on to win the Cherub Nationals twice.
After setting up Lennon Sails in March 2014, we were approached by Clive Everest to further develop his sails. This resulted in a new Jib and Asymmetric design which Clive used to great effect in taking the 2014 National Championship. The spinnaker took some direction from the all conquering A1d I14 design. This is a deep design with draft well forward and straight run aft and delivers plenty of grunt without sacrificing acceleration and the ability to sail high angles if needed. The jib is deeper than designs Mike has produced in the past offering a bit more power. Lennon Sails are very proud to have developed sails that enabled Clive to take the Championship.
Although we have not yet made membrane Cherub sails we can offer this option as it has proved a great success in other classes where we have taken National and European titles.
