    Covid Casualty or Deliberate Fraud? Not such a Great Circle

    I think you need to ask! I do know that many lofts are owned by the local sailmaker and not the National Brand

    Covid Casualty or Deliberate Fraud? Not such a Great Circle

    It is a tangled web indeed.  I believe that after Jan Reuvers and Quantum severed ties, Jan continued operations in the same physical loft. Quantum sued him and Ullman for using their methods. Ullman was dropped from the suit. Quantum initially lost the first decision but a later decision...

    He screwed multiple people by the posts on many sites. He went dark. He is a fraud.

    Covid Casualty or Deliberate Fraud? Not such a Great Circle

    No doubt Covid put tremendous stress on lots of manufacturing and shipping. However, thats no excuse for lack of communication, the lies and the fraud of not sending a deposit to the loft. In the end I got the sails from Craig Millar and they are top notch. Used them in the Annapolis to Newport...

    Craig shared that he new Brian for a very long time. He was dismayed that Brian would not communicate about the situation.

    Covid Casualty or Deliberate Fraud? Not such a Great Circle

    I saved on the 140% Genoa 8k. After a year and a half aggravation. Didn’t have the sail for the season last year but didn’t race last year.

    Covid Casualty or Deliberate Fraud? Not such a Great Circle

    So after hiring a customs broker, I was able to get the sails from JFK airport to my home. I brought the sails to a major loft for inspection and modification of a staysail to add an antitorsion line that Brian Hancock from Great Circle Sails said he had and would install. He refused to respond...

    Covid Casualty or Deliberate Fraud? Not such a Great Circle

    Well, the sails just arrived to the US from the South African loft. I'll have them later this week. When I am able to take a look at them, I'll post my impressions. I thank Craig for being a stand up guy for finishing and delivering them directly to me after Brian Hancock disappeared with my...

    Someone told me they were able to file in small claims court in MA online. That person already has.

    Covid Casualty or Deliberate Fraud? Not such a Great Circle

    Your experience was the typical response I got from the references I checked. I checked 4 or 5, both cruisers and racers. He is an extremely pleasant guy, easy to like and trust with conversation. I'm sad he chose the low road with me when under stress.

    Covid Casualty or Deliberate Fraud? Not such a Great Circle

    I have had good and bad service from the majors as well. It is totally unethical for someone to not deliver downpayment dollars. Maybe fraudulent. I don't know what really happened but whatever it was, it was unethical. He advertises here. I don't think he has the courage to defend himself here...

    Covid Casualty or Deliberate Fraud? Not such a Great Circle

    Apparently, he pissed on a 30 yr friendship with the loft owner. Very sad. I personally feel badly because I referred other people to him after the initial contact and great price. People who have gotten sails from him, were the references I checked. They were all happy with the quality of the...

    Covid Casualty or Deliberate Fraud? Not such a Great Circle

    Anyone else have a problem with getting their sails from Brian Hancock’s company, GreatCircle sails? I ordered sails October of 2019. He gave me an unbeatable price for a carbon fiber/aramid string sail. A 140% Genoa form my Baltic 51.  Literally less than half price of the quotes from major...
