North Sails LOFT NEWS


North Sails Ireland have announced a sponsorship package for the two Irish J/109 class events in 2018. The package will cover the J/109 East Coast Championships at the Royal Irish Yacht Club on May 19th & 20th and the National Championships on October 6th and 7th at Howth Yacht Club.

The package will include North U on the water support, with video analysis and de-briefing after racing and prizes and goodies for competitors.

Speaking at the announcement, Irish J/109 Class Captain Andrew Craig said, “The Irish J/109 class are delighted to continue our partnership with North Sails. Last year’s “post-match” de-brief by Prof and Nigel was both informative and entertaining and the North goodies were very much appreciated by all competitors.”

Maurice “Prof” O’Connell from North Sails Ireland said, “North Sails have worked closely with J-Boats, going all the way back to the launch of the J/24 in 1975. Our 3Di upwind sails and “V-Series” downwind sails are proving to be a fantastic investment for J/109 sailors and are more durable and faster than ever. We look forward to supporting the class at this year’s Nationals and East Coasts”.
