Last week-end at the GPA Maubuisson, the last regatta of the year in France for dinghy classes. North sails took first place in the Finn, 420 and Fireball.

After 2 days of far too much wind racing finally got under way on Saturday in a lighter breeze. For the 420 after 4 races North Sails took some very good top 10 results.

In the Finn, the young Benjamin Montagut took first place after a big battle with Morel Thomas. Benjamin uses the North B3 sail.
