12:00am 23rd November 2014

They've been setting sail and casting anchor but now Moatt Sails has moved into its new store on Portland.

The sail loft is on Mereside in Osprey Quay and is continuing producing a range of sails for everything from yachts to dinghies.

Paralympic Gold Medal winner Helena Lucas is officially opening the shop on 6th December where there'll be two Paella pans on the go as well as some celebratory cake.

It means Moat Sails are now almost just off starboard bow from the likes of Weymouth & Portland Sailing Academy and Portland Marina.

Mark Matthews from the shop said: "We are actually up and running now. We're already back up on to doing production and repairs but we are also still in the process of finishing off screwing things to the walls, painting and getting it all up together and totally finished."
