SAN DIEGO, California ― With more than a decade of sail-making experience, Eric Grigsby joins the Quantum team as the Loft Service Manager at Quantum San Diego. With experience in everything from small cruising sails to custom-made racing sails for 60-90 foot yachts, his knowledge will provide the San Diego loft with the same high-level of service and expertise that sailors expect from Quantum Sails.
A southern California native, Grigsby started his sail-making career in Nevada where he learned the basics as a gantry operator. Within ten years he was specializing in the manufacture of sails for 100+ foot boats, including building all of the upwind sails for +39 Challenge for the America’s Cup and for Puma Ocean Racing for the 2008-09 Volvo Ocean Race.
Three years ago he returned to Southern California to specialize in super yacht and tall ship sails in the San Diego area.
This winter he joins the Quantum Sails team as the Loft Service Manager at Quantum San Diego. Quantum’s National Service Director Charles Saville said Grigsby’s sail-making experience is second-to-none, but it’s his passion for his craft that captured Saville’s attention.
As the Loft Service Manager, he’s looking forward to combining his years of experience with Quantum’s high-quality service model to provide positive experiences for all of his clients.
“My number one goal is to make sure customers have a better experience here than anywhere else,” Grigsby said. “By acting professionally and providing our best work, our customers will receive the highest level of craftsmanship throughout the whole experience.”
