North Sails Clients Take Over The Podium

Streaker UK Nationals Champion, Martin Penty 📸 Karen Langston

The Streaker UK Nationals brought of a mixed bag of conditions at Portland Harbour, with Martin Penty claiming the title using North Sails G-3R sail. Congratulations to all North clients, who took the top four places with the G3-R and G3-L sails performing well and winning every race. With a healthy 31 entries, the regatta was held at the 2012 Olympic venue, Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy (WPNSA) which offered fantastic facilities.

Friday was windy but three races were sailed. Saturday was gusting up to 40 knots so racing was cancelled and Sunday was very light, approximately 3-6 knots. Martin Penty and Steve Blackburn (first and second overall) had near untouchable boat speed in these light conditions on Sunday, both using North Sails G3-R sail.
