NORTH SAILS POWERS 2017 OPTIMIST WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP WIN IN THAILAND
Recently launched Radial R2 design powers María Perelló to win the Optimist Worlds Girls Division
Spanish sailor María Perelló won the 2017 Optimist World Championship Girls Division in Pattaya, Thailand. Using the Radial R2 North sail, she finished 15 points ahead of 2nd place.
The R2 design was developed by the team at North Sails in Japan for better pointing capability and maximum acceleration. North’s Radial Series consists of four sails: R1,R2, R4 and the recently launched R5, each optimized for the sailor’s weight.
The Worlds was hosted by the Royal Varuna Yacht Club with a record-breaking 281 sailors from 62 nations attending the event. Authentic Thailand weather brought the best of everything from rain storms to wind storms, and extremely light wind towards the end of the week. Principal Race Officer Neil Dunkley worked hard around the variety of weather conditions, achieving six quality races for the fleet into the qualifying series and three races into the final medal fleets, making for a very successful event overall.
At just 12 years of age, María has demonstrated amazing talent in the Optimist. Among other titles, she also won this year’s Spanish National Championship. Congratulations María!
