Update from Hydes re delivery of new sails for Nationals

“We have had a really busy autumn / winter that also spilled into the spring.  We were anticipating a slow down around now but the orders are holding up and continuing to arrive at a high rate.  Our lead time is currently 25th August 2017 for production now after the arrival of some recent large orders.

 But we do appreciate the Nationals are on the 12th August.  I have agreed with production we will be able to air freight any orders required to the UK on the 28th July 2017 (Delivery week ending 4th August 2017) if they are placed by the 1st July 2017.”
