OWEN SAILS have appointed Murray Caldwell to bring a further level of experience to the team in the loft at Benderloch. Working alongside Diana Shellcock, Murray will manage sail production and repairs, eventually taking over the running of all sail and repair functions while Diana will still be the main contact for sail specification and quotes, and will continue training in the ever expanding covers department.

Murray started his career with Hood Sails in the late 1990’s, then moved to Saturn Sails where he remained until starting up on his own as MC Sails in 2002.

In 2004, the loft at Nicholson Hughes came up for sale, which he bought and continued to run successfully, producing a wide range of sails and covers.
