The Sail Mates team was gathered in 2014 by Slovenian sailor Marko Kocmut, the founder of Bulb - wind in your pocket. Bulb is the cover brand for two sailing-related products: Sail Mates and sailcloth products, made from new and experienced sailcloth. After two years, we decided to give both products their own separate lives - with their own brand names and dedicated websites. Sail Mates, formerly sold under the brand of Bulb, are now starting their own life under their brand name - Sail Mates.
