Well versed in One Design racing, Will Bomar grew up in Virginia, racing out of Hampton Yacht Club in the junior program, and racing J/24s with his dad. After college, Will became a boat builder and worked on the loft floor in Portsmouth, RI on the Certified Service team. When the opportunity came to help run another sailmaker’s loft with some friends in Annapolis, MD, he moved to the Chesapeake Bay, but not for long before he joined North Sails in Annapolis. Will has since returned to Portsmouth, Rhode Island where he looks forward to working with cruising and racing clients in the greater New England area.

Will is an experienced J/24 and J/70 sailor, as well as a variety of keelboats. When asked to pick a favorite one design class, he easily opts for the J/24. “All the boats go the same speed, so it’s just such a chess game at the top end of the fleet. And every role is so critical; from weight movement to maneuvers, to trimming, to communication… all those pieces have to work together for the boat to excel. A half a boat length gain can be the difference between getting to one mark in front of somebody or being behind twelve other boats. The class is great to be part of and the racing is a lot of fun.”

He commented,
“I am looking forward to working with the Portsmouth, RI team again, helping current and potential clients become better racers and assisting cruisers with any sail care needs.”

When it comes to North Sails as the leader in the sail making industry, Will has the utmost confidence in North products and expertise. Every sail built is made to help clients achieve their sailing goals, whether they race or cruise.

“I’m confident in our products and see many benefits we can provide to both racers and cruisers. The evolution and technology at North is a direct result of our products striving to be the very best there is out there. When you order a one design sail, it’s going to set up exactly the same as the last one, which shows that consistency is carefully accounted for in every sail North makes. Consistency means easy to tune to your same numbers and you know your sails are going to be fast out of the bag.”
