An incredible number of talented sailors, including four Gold medalists, twenty-three Star World Champions and a Volvo Ocean Race winner battled last week for the $100K money prize in cold and variable conditions in Riva Di Garda. North clients, Robert Scheidt, and crew, Henry Raul Boening* took first place with second place going to fellow North powered team, Xavier Rohardt and Pierre-Alexis Ponsot.

The Star Sailors League Breeze Grand Slam / ISCYRA Star European Championships attracted 89 teams from over twenty countries. Sailors from all over the world watched the battle live on the SSL website to see Brazilians Sheidt/Roening’s victory by only a few meters on the last downwind leg over the French team Xavier Rohart and Pierre-Alexis Ponsot, both teams powered by North Sails*.

North Sails Star Class Leader Eric Doyle had a great event with crew, Payson Infelise, finishing 10th place overall after an unfortunate OCS on the last race. “I was bummed that I shot us in the foot with the OCS on the last race, but extremely pleased with the sails we have developed. Xavier used the M-25 Mainsail and J-6 Wave Jib for the entire event, and Sheidt only stopped using the North main because someone came into leeward and poked two holes into the sail with their spreader. Both teams are extremely pleased with their upwind speed, Robert was unbelievably fast downwind – a very impressive and a worthy champion.”

“We were extremely pleased with the newly developed sails as were SSL League Champions, Sheidt/Boening. Rohart/Ponsot finished second in the league, using the NorthM-25 Mainsailand J-6 Wave Jibthroughout the regatta.”

The new North M-25 main is smooth and versatile in all conditions from 0 to 25 knots. The new full radial jibs are durable, straight in the back and very fast.

Eric is heading to the Spring Championship of the Star Western Hemisphere in San Diego this week and back to Spain for the Star World Championship. We have the new designs in stock ready to ship. Get the North power today, contact Eric Doyle, Markus Koy or your local North rep.
