10 Days of All Things Sailing for North Sails Toronto

2019 Toronto Boat Show Booth

What a jam-packed 10 days it was for our Toronto crew at #TIBS2019. While the weather was less than favourable the first weekend, it was still a great time with friends old and new. Our reps from Kingston (George Jackson), Quebec (Miro Balcar) and Hamilton (Doug Folsetter) also joined us for the show!

Office manager, Louisa Sonosky, shares how “the show was an amazing way to kick off the New Year and get people thinking about sailing again.” Everyone was able to put a little bit of summer in their winter and start getting ready for summer 2019.

In addition to our local team, Bill Gladstone of North U, along with Geoff Moore, was on hand presenting North U Seminars during the first and second weekend. Gladstone & Moore shared information on Tactics, Tips & Tricks as well as Upwind Sail Trim in the hour-long complimentary sessions.

NEW this year was our 3Di RAW 360. Boats with North 3Di RAW sails command podiums worldwide in the most competitive events and classes. For 2019, North has applied this advanced technology to 3Di RAW 360, a new product tier which combines 3Di’s signature shape holding with an easy to read, easy to trim, and notably long-life racing sail that is perfect for Club Race sailors with smaller boats.

Sales expert, Hugh Beaton, says “this is an exciting new product that is pushing North Sails technology to club racers and the local racing circuit.”

The Toronto crew of North Sails would like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who stopped by and supported the team!
