Edward Hyde

Edward Hyde founded Hyde Sails in 1965 in partnership with Keith Musto. Musto and Hyde, as it was then known, became a market leader in one design racing sails.

Their sails dominated many classes and were used to win World and National championships in almost every dinghy and small keel boat. In 1982 the pair separated their interests with Musto focusing on the accessory and clothing company which had been spun off the sailmaking business. Hyde remained a sailmaker and ran the Company until he sold a controlling interest in 2008. In that time Hyde became a competent business man whilst retaining his interest and enthusiasm for the product. 

So what has tempted Hyde from retirement? "Mike and I worked together for 22 years and I encouraged him to develop his sail design skills. Mike is now one of the outstanding sail designers of his generation. Mike and I have remained in contact in the years since I left Hyde Sails and when he left in March 2014 I took the opportunity to team up with Mike again. Mike and I will build a brand based on technical excellence, quality and service. I will provide the business experience and hope to be able to offer advice and guidance on the strategy for the Company, as it grows".
