North Sails

 
 
 
 

Marking two years until the Rio 2016 Olympic Games the Aquece Rio - International Sailing Regatta 2014 - was held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil last week. 324 sailors from across the Olympic classes came together from 34 nations and experienced a mixed bag of conditions in Guanabara Bay.

After the event the organisers said 'It has been quite a ride, but the sun has set on a thrilling regatta week. Guanabara Bay has been thoroughly tested, and passed with flying colours. Congratulations to the athletes and thanks for following, we'll be back with more sailing next year!

In the 470 class North Sails boats dominated both the Mens and Ladies fleets and also took all 3 podium places in each fleet.
