Welcome to Paul Newell Sails! We are a small family company making sails and sailcloth products in Bembridge on the Isle of Wight. Wherever possible we recycle sailcloth but, when unavailable, we use new sailcloth of the highest quality. We design and manufacture a range of unique, exciting and wonderfully robust sailcloth bags and accessories.
Our imaginative and colourful designs are hand decorated and inspired by our nautical heritage and seaside life. Using exactly the same skills and techniques we use to make our sails, each product is individual and made to last.
Paul has had 40 years experience sail making on the island. An accomplished sailor who sailed as Robin Knox-Johnson's sail-maker in the Whitbread Round-the-World yacht race, he continues to sail and race today. He works with his wife, Vanessa, an accomplished artist and designer.
