North Sails LOFT NEWS

ON TOUR IN SYDNEY AND PITTWATER FOR THE AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL TITLES.

Aaron Cole from North Sails Australia sailed with his client Jeffrey Richardson on his 26′ Div 1 Couta ‘Georgia’.

“We sailed in the 3 day regatta with our new Radian Gaff mainsail and Radial Jib. We placed in a few races and the competition was tight”. Wagtail was probably the most on form boat and always finishing in the top 3 across 4 races! Close to 50% of the fleet (22) at the Sydney Regatta used NS. The National Titles are this coming weekend and we would like to wish our clients the very best of luck!

NS has been very successful over the last few years since developing the Radial Gaff Mainsail and Jib. Much effort and time has gone in from the clients and North Sails Team, NS legend Noel ‘Nitro’ Drennan lived in Sorrento at the beginning of our development period and working with Nick Williams and Wayne Johnstone (‘Wagtail’ C86) they worked on both sail designs to improve matching up the depth/twist in the mainsail and the jib which leads to a nicely balanced boat… VIP on a long keeled class that was originally designed for catching ‘Barracouta’ fish in the coastal waters of bass strait!
