Sailing Technologies S.L.
Sailing Technologies S.L.

Sailing Technologies is a spin-off company from the Institut Químic de Sarrià specializing in the development and marketing of high-technology sailing products that improve the living conditions and safety of sailors on-board.

The origin of Sailing Technologies lies in the synergy created by the developers of two projects with their roots at universities. The DrSails adhesive was developed by the team in the Materials Engineering Group at the Institut Químic de Sarria. BoatKERS was a project by the Electrical Engineering Group at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia.

Because the marine market for both products is relatively small and is difficult to enter, the project developers, Jordi Arbusà and Francisco Ripoll, decided to create Sailing Technologies, a technology-based company that combines their resources and acts as a springboard into the sailing market. To complete the professional team, Ricard Puigbò joined the company in order to organize and coordinate the company’s activities.
