The Kafentzidakis family have been sailmakers for almost half a century. One of the first sails that the founder, and father, sailed was the “Sunrize” mainsail. Designed to be a workhorse of a sail, this piece of well cut sailcloth has would have travelled the equivalent of at least 100 Odysseys worth of travels. A comforting thought, to know such an item.
