Just Like All Of You, We Can’t Wait to Get on the Water

 

North Sails President Ken Read checked in to give us an update on what’s going on at North Sails this week. Ken, like all of us, is working from his makeshift home office in Rhode Island. It’s a strange time for the world right now, but our lofts are open where possible, and the North sales and service team are available for a call at any time.

Like all of you, we can’t wait to go sailing; being contained to our homes right now is only growing our desire to get on the water. We’re working hard to deliver updates and a daily dose of the sport we love. Check-in on northsails.com and follow along with Instagram or Facebook for the latest news at North Sails.

Pre-Season Prep

We may not have our exact launch dates, but we are all looking forward to getting on the water as soon as possible. Your local service teams are hard at work to make sure that you’re ready to enjoy every single second of the 2020 sailing season. 

At North Sails, our mission is to provide you with expert repairs, maintenance, and upgrades. Every sail serviced by our teams undergoes a thorough inspection designed to identify maintenance issues to avoid major problems later on. Our Certified Service teams are on hand during this time to provide you with pre-season service, including the North Sails signature 10-point inspection.

By Appointment: Curbside Service

Come to us or we’ll come to you! North Sails is now offering curbside pick up and delivery of sails where local rules allow. Call and schedule a time for pick up or drop off out in front of our building or at your home. Find your nearest loft today and make an appointment to have your sails serviced or new sails delivered so you can hit the ground running once the sailing season begins.
