Local North Sails sales experts get racers measured & certified for the upcoming racing season


Racers gathered at our Toronto loft this past weekend to prepare for the upcoming season by getting their sails measured & certified. Our sales experts, Hugh Beaton and Mike Wolfs, and service team, Joel Caro, were on hand answering questions & providing service advice for sails brought in.

Our team of experts walked sailors through the measurement process, what would be involved in servicing them including a brief overview of our 10 Point Inspection and recommendations for improving sail handling. LOOR Chair Joe Doris stopped by with his Genoa for his Hanse 40 to get ready for the Lake Ontario 300 and the Susan Hood Trophy Race this year. Last year’s Lake Ontario 300 Scotch Bonnet line honour winner & Yachtsman’s Cup winner Mike Brown also stopped by with his A3 and S2 to prepare for the season.

It was a great event, in conjunction with Lake Ontario Offshore Racing, which helped racers cross off another item on their to-do list for the season. Our Toronto team thanks racers for coming out!

Missed the event? Not to worry. Bring your sails in anytime and our service team can help get your sails measured & certified, both for PHRF and IRC ratings.
