Rolly Tasker Sails, Phuket, Thailand

I'm at the largest sail loft in the world employing nearly 100 women to sew sails for sailing boats the world over.
It was started by a famous Australian sailor who regularly won the Sydney to Hobart yacht race. They had a list of his successful triumphs on the wall.
This place is enormous.
I was actually hoping to buy a spinnaker while I was here and besides having some stock sails available, they had quite a few "seconds" like this one that was just slightly bigger than I wanted for under $US1000.
Here are a few more pictures of the loft.
You can see the"seconds" lined up against the wall on the left. Most of these sails were perfectly okay and less than half the price of a new one.
