The Chesapeake Sailmakers Team
Founder and Loft Manager
Chuck is a lifelong cruiser and racer who was fortunate enough to turn his passion into a career. A former business major and CPA from LaSalle University in Phildelphia, Chuck started his sailmaking business in 2002, after working for a local sailmaker for a few years learning the trade. He has 17 years of experience building and repairing sails, but his best skill is listening to clients needs and working with them to create solutions that make their sailing safer and more enjoyable.
Chuck has sucessfully collaborated with numerous racing teams and has guided countless numbers of extended cruisers on how to plan and prepare their sail inventories for offshore sailing.
Since starting off as a post high-school job, Todd has been building and repairing sails over 15 years. His aprentiseship started at the newly formed Quantum Sail Design Group, where Todd was mentored by some of the best in the industry.
Todd grew up as a Junior Sailor in Annapolis and continued his passion for sailing with experience in One-Design and Handicap Racing, and a life time of bluewater and coastal cruising experience. Todd can help with all your sailing needs; questions and concerns, sail repairs, recommendations and evaluations. From stackpacks to laminates Todd brings experience where you need it.
