Background

Smith Sails and Canvas is run by Yancy and his partner Bek. Growing up in a sailing family of 4 boys (plus Mum and Dad) Yancy was always going to be involved in the industry – He didn’t really have a choice! The first Smith Sails loft was established by his parents in Mooloolaba in the late 70’s and from there it’s been an evolution of sorts, that has included working with some of the world’s largest sail making brands.

After selling the family business in 2015 and taking a break from the industry Yancy and Bek started filling custom canvas orders from their home and it wasn’t long before the business outgrew this and Smith sails and Canvas was open for business again!

Coming from a family of champion sailers – including world national and state titles in various classes, Yancy draws on this experience along with his practical skills, tradesmanship and embraces the latest technology to deliver a cutting edge product.

Smith Sails have adorned championship winning off the beach one design classes, skiffs and catamarans along with off shore racers, catamarans and maxi’s.
