Minden, Nevada

Minden is the flagship center for creating 3-Dimensional products (3DiTM and 3DLTM, unique to North Sails), which have revolutionized the sport and become market leaders due to their durability and performance. The products from Minden are sent to every port in the world, making this inland location unique in the sailing industry.
