Offering Service For Sydney Hobart / Australian Sailing Championship Sailors

North Sails Certified Service Experts in Tasmania are here to get your sails repaired overnight post Sydney-Hobart. Our service van will be onsite offering pick-up and drop-off to the regatta venue. Things can happen after a 600nm race, but that doesn’t mean you are left without a key feature of your sail inventory!

North Sails Tasmania is situated a short distance from the heart of Hobart and will be ready to service your sails as soon as you have finished the race. To make it easy and to accommodate the influx of yachts coming to Hobart, we are offering a pickup and delivery service at two ideal locations:

Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania, host of the IRC Nationals

Peter Johnston Ship Chandlery, situated at the docks in Hobart

If you are competing in the IRC Nationals after this year’s Sydney to Hobart, North Sails can be there to pick up your sails from Kings Pier as soon as you have completed the great race.
Please feel free to contact our friendly North Sails team to assist with your service needs. We look forward to seeing you in Hobart!
