    Wilkinson Sails----main operation is in Faversham but they do have an office in Burnham, If you wish to contact The Burnham on Crouch loft then give Mick a call on 07748 877526.
    Can't comment on the Burnham loft but I have been very pleased with the service from their Faversham office

    Mick no longer has a sail loft in Burnham. He operates from a workshop at home in Burnham. I know he does canvas work but not sure that he still does work on sails.

    I ended up using Suffolk Sails, very reasonable and a pleasure to deal with.

    Their quote was extortionate! Maybe I got them on a bad day but the guy was suggesting it was worth replacing my 4yo marblehead genoa instead of merely fixing the UV strip!

    There's too many people with more money than sense there, obviously! However I did think it was a bit cheeky even then!

    I had my UV strip on my genoa replaced by Wilkinson sails last year. It was not a cheap job and this year started to go at one of the outer seams. I let it out completely in an F5 to take down and replace with my spare the sail ripped at the UV strip. Not pleased with the expense. Would not use again.

    Just taken my Yankee to Jeckell's (Wroxham) to get the UV strip restitched.
    They took me into their fabulous cutting floor to spread it out and after a few minutes of looking asked if I was still sailing or if I had packed up for the season. On hearing my answer the fella asked, "Have you got anything to do for the next hour and a half?"
    They also asked if I wanted the old stitching picking out or just run over (it would add £100 to the bill).

    That's what I call service. Thanks Jeckells! Well done.
