The Toronto loft of Evolution Sails is located in the west end of Toronto on the north shore of Lake Ontario. We have an 11,000 square foot loft where we manufacture and service sails for Canada and the US side of the Great Lakes. In addition to sails we also distribute Hood Yachts Systems furling and are the Ontario dealer for SPW Propellers. Our showroom hosts other furling brands such as Harken, Furlex and Bamar.

John Dakin

One Design Specialist

John started in the sailmaking business in 1974, working for Hans Fogh in his Elvstrom Sails Canada loft as a summer job.

After finishing school (or school finishing with him), he went to work at the loft full time. John thought he would do it for a couple of years and do lots of sailing before getting a “real” job. Now 40 odd years later, he still hasn’t found that “real” job

Working with Hans, John learned everything about sails, from design, lofting, materials, sewing, repairing, pretty much everything involved in making the very best sails.

The thing with the sailmaking job is you have so much opportunity to race all sorts of boats all over the world. He has been fortunate to sail with some of the best sailors in the world and has won numerous world championships, North American championships and National championships.
