North Sails: News Details


Melges 24 European Championship

Nigel Young

Congratulations to Flavio Flavini and his Team on Blue Moon for crushing the Melges 24 fleet assembled for the Magic Marine Melges 24 Europeans.

Blue Moon sailed with outstanding consistency during a regatta with very mixed conditions.  Talking to Flavio during the regatta he was delighted with his speed and his confidence in the North Sails products to help give him that speed.

I was racing as well with Miles Quentin and his Team GILL.  We only started sailing together in May 2013 but have made some nice progress during the year. Well done to Rob Larke our substitute helm who took over from regular Team GILL helm Geoff Carveth as Geoff has a new sailor joining his family!  11th overall for us out of the 70 strong fleet was a nice way to end our European season.

North Sails enjoyed some spectacular results during the week.  Not only did we power Flavio to Victory we also supplied sails to the top 8 boats overall and 9 of the top 10 were powered by North.
