ETCHELLS SUCCESS FOR NORTH SAILS IN GEELONG

Top Of The Fleet Powered By North Sails At Victorian Championship Regatta

While the Etchells Victorian Championship regatta in Geelong, Australia last weekend brought mixed conditions, the results for Magpie, skippered by Graeme Taylor and his crew Richie Allanson and James Mayo, remained consistent. Finishing top of the podium, they won four out of six races, (placing second in the other two), followed closely by North’s own Charlie Cumbley in Tango with Chris Hampton and Sam Haines. Third was Jean-Claude Strong’s 1435, with Tom Slingsby, Marcus Burke and Kate Devereux crewing.

Charlie Cumbley, Etchells Class Expert:

”North Sails light and heavy air jib designs proved their versatility and success during the regatta, handling well in a range of wind strengths, from 5 to 35 knots.”.
