Geoff Bishop at the helm of his King 40 CHECKMATE.

When not racing or helping clients with their new sails, Geoff loves getting out on the water with his family and friends, racing his King 40 CHECKMATE to test out the latest sail designs and sail constructions. When not on the water it’s family, Aussie rules football, barbeques and just having a good time.

“ I really enjoy seeing my clients using their new sails and sailing well, there is nothing better than meeting a clientwho is so excited about the improvement in their boat performance .” 

“I enjoy my sailing and I want my clients to as well.”
