There is no better reward for us at North Sails than seeing a client win a big regatta. Witnessing world-class sailor Augie Diaz win two back-to-back Silver Star events using our recently launched Star designs is the best product testimonial we could ask for. Congratulations Augie Diaz, sailing with Brazilian Henry Boening, for the victories at the North Americans in Barnegat Bay and the Star Eastern Hemispheres in Austria with crew Christian Nehammer.

A competitive 32-boat fleet and four days of the best conditions on Barnegat Bay made for close racing throughout the seven-race series for the North American title. It all came down to the final race and in the end, Augie and Henry secured the title. Augie used our M-25 mainsail throughout the series along with the J-6 Jib for four of the seven races.

“Fresh off his win in the Eastern Hemispheres using North Sails, Augie felt pretty confident in his speed to be able to win the North Americans,” commented North Sails rep John Macausland.

“Extensive R&D and uncountable hours of sail testing have paid off,” exclaimed North expert Eric Doyle. As the Star Class Leader for North Sails, Eric devoted the past two years to figuring out how to make Star sails faster. His decisive victory at the 2019 Bacardi Cup proved the time was well spent. “We were really pleased with our performance throughout the wind range in Miami,” Eric explained, adding that he used the new M-25 mainsail for the entire event.

Last May, the story wasn’t different at the Star Sailors League Breeze Grand Slam. “We were extremely pleased with the newly developed sails as were SSL League Champions, Sheidt/Boening. Rohart/Ponsot finished second in the league, using the North M-25 Mainsail and J-6 Jib throughout the regatta,” said Eric.

Get ready for the next SSL event and the Star Worlds in Nassau with the fastest Star sails. Contact your local North Star Expert today.
