GO BEHIND THE SCENES WITH SAIL DESIGNER BURNS FALLOW
Episode 2: North Sails x the 36th America’s Cup
Joining North Sails in 1988, Burns Fallow is the lead sail designer for Emirates Team New Zealand and has been at the forefront of sail design for the Kiwi team ever since. He’s seen it all from hoisting sails mid-race in the IACC boats to hard wing sails on 72’ cats; for the 36th America’s Cup, Fallow was one of the central figures in bringing to life the twin skin mainsail concept. It’s stressful being one of the best, but Burns manages it. “Yes, there’s stress, but hopefully you thrive on it. That’s why I keep coming back for more,” Fallow said.
