North Sails: News Details


XODs at Cowes Classic Week

Richie Bell

Last week the sixth edition of Cowes Classic Week brought to the Island the largest fleet of classic boats ever assembled in the UK and incorporated the Metre & Classic Keelboat Regatta.

Amongst the classes were the XOD Fleet with 38 boats competing in the regatta. The winner at the end of the week was Mike Martell and Fraser Graham on X91 'Astralita' using their North sails.

We'd also like to make a special mention and congratulations to Abbie and Ben Childerley, 10yrs & 13yrs old respectively, who took turns helming their dad Stuart's boat and came 4th.


The North top 10 results were 1, 4, 5, 7, 10.

For more information on our XOD designs please see our class page.

Full results from the regatta can be seen on the event website.
