North Sails: News Details


420 World & Junior European Selectors

Mike Riley

Victory for Tim Riley and Luke Burywood.


Tim and Luke sailed another consistent regatta in Pwllheli to clinch the overall victory in the 24 race, 3 regatta selection series following their victory at RYA Youth Championship.

They have now been selected to attend the 420 World Championship in Valencia, the Junior European Championship in Pwllheli and the ISAF World Championship in Cyprus as part of the RYA Volvo Team GBR.

Pwllheli, offered very contrasting conditions with glorious sunshine and light winds (5 to 9 knots) on the first day when 4 races were completed.  Sunday produced 2 races in a 2 to 3 metre breaking swell in 15 to 18 knots of breeze with mist and heavy rain and then finally in the last race saw a very shifty 5 knots, in a nasty swell as the sun reappeared.

Tim and Luke race with a full inventory of North Sails please see our class page to find out more about these designs.
