North Sails: News Details


Solo Tyler Trophy Hayling Island

Judith Wilkinson


Above Matt Howard on his way to winning the Tyler Trophy at Hayling Island last weekend. With a turnout of 56 boats the event served as a thorough warm up for the Nationals to be held there in July.

On day one Matt, sailing with his North sail, took all three wins with North's Charlie Cumbley close on his heels with 2 2nds, but an unfortunate OSC in the last race.

Day two saw Michael Sims take the first race of the day followed by two wins from Charlie.  Matt however had done enough on day one combined with two reasonable results on day two, a 4th and 9th, to win overall. Charlie finished in 5th and Tim Law, also powered by North in 2nd.

6 of the top 10 were racing with North sails.  To find out more about our range of North designs for the Solo please visit our dedicated class page.
