North Sails-Powered Teams Win 420 Class Worlds in Japan

Congratulations to Daichi Takayama and his crew, Syota Nakano for winning the 420 Class World Championship in Castle Bay Karatsu, Japan. The duo, racing with a complete North Sails 420 inventory, sailed very well in a highly competitive regatta with 168 boats from 22 countries. “Congratulations to Daichi and Syota for a great win in their home waters,” said Kei Takakuwa, Sales Manager for North Sails One Design in Japan. “We are very proud of their accomplishment and look forward to following them on their journey to the 2016 Olympic Games,” Takakuwa said.

North Sails-powered boats also finished 3rd (Calum Gregor/Hugo Christensson / Hong Kong), 4th (Vasillios Gourgiotis/Epameinodas Orestis / Greece) and 5th (Hiroaki Kato/Takuma Yoshinaga / Japan) in the open class.

North Sails would also like to congratulate the top eight female teams, all powered by North Sails*, for taking top honors in their 60-boat division. Marta Garrido and Maria Jesus Davila from Spain took the gold medal without having to sail the last race. “The level of competition among the women’s class is incredible and we are very proud that teams using North Sails finished in the top eight places,” continued Takakuwa. “These sailors are incredible athletes and I am sure we will see many of them at the Olympic Games next summer,” he said.

Congratulations to the following North Sails-powered teams in the ladies division:

1. Marta Garrido/María Jesus Dávila (ESP)*

2. Charlotte Yven/Marine Riou (FRA)

3. Misaki Tanaka/Sena Takano (JPN)

4. Nia Jerwood/Lisa Smith (AUS)

5. Sarah Norbury/Mari Davies (GBR)

6. Marina Lefort/Lara Granier (FRA)
