NORTH SAILS DOMINATES BAYVIEW ONE DESIGN REGATTA
Bayview One Design Regatta 2019
Racers eagerly lined the docks for the 2019 Bayview One Design Regatta at Bayview Yacht Club the first weekend in June to kick-off a race filled weekend.
What a great event. Even though the weather didn’t cooperate for the whole weekend. Congrats to Race Chair Nathan Hollerbach, Bayview Yacht Club and all the Volunteers on a great event. North Sail is pleased to see all of our customers have a great time on and off the water. We had many accomplishments on the water that it is hard to highlight them all.
North Sails Detroit local expert Karl Kuspa shares;
One team that really caught my attention was the Kirkman sons Michael and Conner. They sailed the family J70 in this weekend finishing 5th but winning two races. The average age of their crew was about fifteen. How exciting. Of course we also need to acknowledge Jim Allen who won the Lightning Class in his boat powered by North. His performance earned him Overall Boat of the Week.
We were pleased to see how many people took advantage of us bringing Andreas Josenhans (AJ) in for post-racing debriefs. He did a lot of one on one consultations with boat owners and crew; there was a line all weekend to talk to him. What a great resource, we appreciate AJ coming in for this event and sharing his years of experience.
Local sales expert Geoff Moore, racing on a Beneteau 36.7, also mentioned the benefit of having AJ on site for racers to connect with post-racing and learn from.
