COVID-19 and Rolly Tasker Sails

As you will be aware, Rolly Tasker Sails is an international sail maker with its central loft being located in Phuket, Thailand and exclusive distributors based in each country, such as Rolly Tasker Sails Australia.

To reduce the spread of the Corona Virus, Thailand has imposed a lockdown for all but the very essential shops. Phuket is effectively closed down from April 13 to April 26, with officials carefully checking all activities. So, for this period, our sail production has been put on hold.



At Rolly Tasker Sails in Phuket, a management task force continues operating from home offices for incoming orders and other ongoing administrative and management. Further and maybe even more important is our ongoing sail design team who will continue with the sail design process and prepare for the re-start of actual sail production.



Our entire staff are taken care of in the best possible way with extra compensation and, thankfully, no one is sick. With these measures in place we will return to full production capacity as soon as the shutdown is lifted and deliver with the least possible delay.



In these testing times, we all do our best to help curb the spread of the virus, but also to keep our day-to-day lives going as best as possible. We will successfully get through this crisis together and look forward to the times when life returns back to normal and we can be out on the water, sailing the bays and coasts and oceans. We look forward to seeing you all out there again in the not so distant future! Take care and stay well!



While production is temporarily on hold at the loft in Phuket we are ‘full steam ahead’ here in Australia. We are ready to consult with you on your needs, provide quotes and process orders. Don’t hesitate in contacting us today about your specific requirements!
