GROWING STRONG AT EXPO VOILE
North Sails Toronto Joins Marina Gosselin
A weekend of cold temperatures, rain and FUN at Marina Gosselin with North Sails Toronto. Louisa and Kyann joined local North Sails rep Miro Balcar for the annual Expo Voile in Quebec to connect with sailor and celebrate the season ahead. Located an hour south of Montreal, Marina Gosselin is a sailing hub for local sailors who have a passion for sailing and quality time on their boats with loved ones and friends. North Sails Toronto’s Louisa Sonosky commented; “Connecting face to face with our Quebec customers is always a joy! Their enthusiasm for cruising, their boats and passion for sailing is infectious – you can’t help but get excited about sailing when you’re with them.”
It was fantastic to see so many new and familiar faces and discuss new sail options with customers, especially 3Di technology. With cruising as the primary focus for sailors, 3Di NORDAC was a hot topic amongst the team, as well as 3Di Raw and 3Di Endurance for those who interested in sailing south with their boats. Those with their sails in hand are waiting for mother nature to cooperate so they can go sailing! Long time customer Marc Deslauriers, owner of a Beneteau First 38, can’t wait to get out to try his new NPL Tour Xi Furling Genoa and Tour Xi Full Batten Mainsail this summer. 3Di NORDAC owner Jean-Sebastien was also sharing the same sentiments.
“Connecting face to face with our Quebec customers is always a joy! Their enthusiasm for cruising, their boats and passion for sailing is infectious – you can’t help but get excited about sailing when you’re with them.”
The team was also able to deliver the Solo Valcour flags (below) for the upcoming 2019 race, started by Miro Balcar years ago to help promote single handed distance cruising in the area. North Sails Toronto is proud to keep their sponsorship of the event going with the custom flags for the event; a staple in the local community.
