JOHN-ØYVIND GARVIK WINS 91-BOAT REGATTA USING THE NORTH R-4 DESIGN

The New North Sails Optimist Designs Continue to Prove Superior Speed on the Race Course

We are happy to share yet another major regatta win powered by North Sails R-4 design. John-Øyvind Garvik won the first event of the Norwegian Ranking Series, the Norwegian Optimist Cup, taking first place out of 91 total boats. The conditions were light, but not too challenging for 14-year old JØ, who had strong finishes of 1-2-1 to win the first event for the Norwegian Ranking. JØ has been using his North Sails R-4 since last September and is also helping us test the new R-5 design, with the coordination of our Optimist specialist Thomas Nilsson and his coach Luka Radelic.

The North Sails Optimist designs have been winning many major events in 2017, including the Spanish Nationals, New Zealand Nationals and Irish Trials.
