MC38 AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP
Clients Favor Pittwater Conditions Sweeping Title
The MC38 Nationals were conducted in the waters of Pittwater in 2019 with variable conditions over three days which Pittwater is notorious for. The Maserati team with Tom Quick at the helm took out the regatta after a strong last day. Skipper Joe Turner had the following to say “We had an issue with our boat the week of the regatta so we missed our opportunity to test and commission our sails for the nationals. But the work we have done with North’s over the past 12 months had paid off and the new sails were spot on out of the bag. Which got us out of a bit of trouble. We are really happy with our set up, the boat is consistently on pace in all conditions, just need to send it the right way more often! Neville has been a great leader for myself and our team. He took me on as boat captain/tactician with little one design tactical experience and over the past four years we have built a very solid team and program. His long lasting relationship with Cocko and North Sails has been a key to our success.”
“Neville has been a great leader for myself and our team, and his long lasting relationship with North Sails Michael Coxon “Cocko”, has been a key to our success at the MC38 Australian Nationals”
