SOLO NATIONS CUP 2018

North Sails expert Charlie Cumbley takes the victory with near-straight bullets

Charlie Cumbley has won the 2018 Solo Nations cup in Lake Garda, carrying eight first-places on his scoreboard out of 10 races. The event saw forty-eight entries from the Netherlands and the UK come together for some spectacular racing in very testing conditions for most of the regatta, with only one light wind day.

Rounding off the podium in third place was Tim Law. Tim was tied on points with the second placed boat however due to count back took the bronze position. Charlie and Tim were both using the North P-2 Mainsail.

“The P-2 mainsail is a great all-purpose sail, it performed really well in both the light and heavy wind days” Charlie commented

The next event in the calendar for the Solo class is the UK Nationals in three weeks time in Hayling Island where ninety boats are currently entered. If you want to get your hands on this championship winning sail, contact your North Sails expert today.
