North Sails Dominate the 420 and Fireball Classes.


Maubuisson in France recently hosted their muti class regatta the Grand Prix de l'Armisitce.

The event saw conditions ranging from a fickle 4 kts at the beginning of the regatta to a lively 15-20ts on the final day. The ninety six entries in the 420 class enjoyed an excellent 4 days of racing. North Sails dominated the results with 6 of the top 7 boats and 1st, 2nd and 3rd overall all powered by North Sails.

The Fireballs and 505s only raced for 3 days avoiding the lightest breeze on the first day. North Sails again dominated the results in the Fireball Class with 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, & 10th overall.

The boats finishing 2nd and 4th in the 505 class also used North Sails.

Congratulations to all for an excellent performance.
