North Sails clients top One Design weekend in Ohio for Race Week!
It was a nice weekend for sailing in Cleveland with 11 classes participating in One Design weekend, which also served as the Star Western Hemispheres, T-10 Lake Erie Championships, and the J70 Great Lakes Championships. North-powered clients took the top positions in seven divisions, taking the top five in the Interlake and Jet 14 classes. The Interlakes had a big turnout, much bigger than normally expected with 19 boats on the line. In this fleet alone there were five previous National Champions, making for a very competitive event for the division. The Tartan 10 fleet also had great numbers and excellent competition. Congratulations to our clients for finishing 1st through 5th in the Interlake Class, 1st overall in the J/22’s, 1st in J/24’s, 1st in J/70’s, 1st through 5th in the Jet 14 Class, 1st in the Melges 32 division, and 1st overall in the T-10 division.
North Sails is a proud sponsor of Cleveland Race Week. We are happy to see the event be such a success and for our clients to do well in the standings!
A total of 29 teams, representing 9 different nations, engaged in fierce competition across six events this year. While Cape 31s have attracted some of the world's best sailors, the class rules, which limit the crew to three professionals, also create an environment where owner-drivers race with friends and family.
