North Sails filled the top podium at the New Zealand Elliott 5.9 Nationals last weekend. All three teams used 3Di OCEAN 330 mainsails and jibs.

This was one of the closest finishes the class has seen in many years. Congratulations to clients Crag Satterhwaite and team on Rough and Reddy, edging out Kevin Peet’s Smak to win the regatta on count back. Only a few points behind in third was Stu Clarke’s team Slam Dunk. Congratulations to all on great sailing!
