Seaview Sails and Rigging is a Limited Liability company formed in August 2011 and is owned by Todd and Nicola Olson, with our son Jack helping out after school. We are family that Sails. Our loft has 145sq.m of space, big enough for all sails.
Our Mission statement is : Provide the best sails and service to our customers
Todd grew up in Whitby, learning to sail at Paremata Boating Club when he was 6. Todd has also represented Wellington in the Tanner Cup (P Class ) and also NZ in the 1997 International One Meter Class World Champs.
Todd has over 10 years experience in both sail repairs and rigging. Most of my experience was gathered off shore in Bermuda, where I worked in a Sail loft that was a North Sails agent and also had a Rigging side. I have stepped many new and re-rigged masts, some well over 100'.
Todd has sailed many classes and has experience on many types of keelboats, Optimist, P Class, Starling, Laser, Laser II, 420, 470, Sunburst, E1050, MRX, Muir 8.2, RP80, J24, E22, IOD, J105, J109 and more...
