North Sails are pleased to announce the addition of Tom Spithill to the team in Australia.

Growing up in Elvina Bay on the waters of Pittwater as a part of a sailing family, Tom was chucked into a boat at a young age.

Since then Tom has continued to sail, and up until recently was the head coach at the RPAYC for over ten years where he coached many successful youth and open teams and was awarded both NSW Coach of the year and Australian Coach of the year.

Tom has a passion for teaching veterans and first responders sailing, and was an integral part of the Invictus Games Sydney in his role as Sports Competition Manager.

More recently Tom has been enjoying sailing his foiling moth Wendy Jnr and his classic international 5.5 metre Baragoola.

“I’ve enjoyed hopping out of the coach boat and getting back out on the water, doing as much yachting as I can, whether that be a non spinnaker twilight, or a world championships.

Tom was a client of North Sails prior to joining the team, using championship-winning sails on his 5.5 Metre and the 3Di Decksweeper on his Bieker Moth. Tom commented, “both of which I have been equally impressed with.”

What does Tom hope to do for North Sails clients? He commented, “I’m looking forward to sharing my passion with other like minded sailors, while helping new and potential clients marry up with the right product for their type of sailing.”

We are proud to have Tom on our team in Australia. If you have any questions about optimizing your inventory, please contact Tom.
