On top of these majors events, there have been numerous regional and open victories, so many congratulations to all those who have added to the victory list. Our North Sails team, which includes Charlie Cumbley, Lawrence Creaser, Tom Lonsdale, Nick Bonner and Pete Mitchell have been sailing throughout the season and have been out amongst the action, challenging the Solo class sailors for titles.

Charlie, UK One Design Sales Manager commented, “Thanks to our team being on the water we have managed to ensure that we give our customers the best possible sales service. By being on the race course amongst our clients, we have created a fantastic bond which enables us to stay on top of all class and sail developments, which in turn help us to make the best possible product on the market.”
