Michael Lennon has been making and designing winning sails since 1986 when he joined Edward Hyde at Hyde Sails.


At that time Hyde was an international market leader in one design sail making, being used to win numerous Olympic, World and National Championships. Mike soon became the head of the development team working with leading sailors across a wide range of classes. Michael pioneered the use of sail design software at Hyde and supervised the introduction of laser cutting equipment.


The one design market changed dramatically in the 1990s with the introduction of new boats by Laser and RS.  Mike played a prominent role in the development, not only of the sails, but also of the complete rigs for all the new boats for both companies.  Michael is without doubt the leading exponent in the world of this design discipline with more experience than any other sail designer.


Given his interest in the technical aspect of small boat racing it is not surprising that Michael has sailed in many classes in which there is scope for development.  He spent some years in the International 14 class winning the POW and the Championship. He has been National Champion in a wide variety of dinghies and keelboats from the Melges 24 to the Scorpion (three times). Two Olympic campaigns in Flying Dutchman gave Mike experience of racing at this level which demands an attention to detail and a dedication far beyond the experience of most sailors.  Michael is currently racing a Foiling Moth, the most technically advanced dinghy class in the world.
