The British International school in Georgia add StarSail canopies

The StarSails were shipped all the way from our headquarters in Shropshire to Tbilisi in Georgia, a journey of 2805 miles! As you can see from the photos the journey was worth it.

This canopy looks fantastic and has made a big difference to students at The Coopers Company and Coburn School.
