Alex Cook graduated from Boston College in 2013 and has been working as a sailmaker ever since. Joining North Sails in 2019 was a great opportunity, he says, “to be more interactive with customers, and to do more sailing.” 

Alex grew up in Marblehead, MA, sailing every type of one design available in that busy harbor: Etchells, Sonars, Rhodes 19s, J/70s. Now he does “a bunch of very broad sailing—PHRF stuff, one design stuff.” He’s also looking forward to “expanding into different types of sailing that I hadn’t been doing previously.” For hobbies, he names skiing and fishing. “My dad’s a big avid fisherman, and I go with him.”

Working for North allows him to see the industry from a different perspective, Alex adds. “The company as a whole is working toward a similar goal. I’ve definitely enjoyed it so far.”
