North Sails Ireland have announced a sponsorship package for the two Irish J/109 class events in 2018. The package will cover the J/109 East Coast Championships at the Royal Irish Yacht Club on May 19th & 20th and the National Championships on October 6th and 7th at Howth Yacht Club.

The package will include North U on the water support, with video analysis and de-briefing after racing and prizes and goodies for competitors.

Speaking at the announcement, Irish J/109 Class Captain Andrew Craig said, « The Irish J/109 class are delighted to continue our partnership with North Sails. Last year’s « post-match » de-brief by Prof and Nigel was both informative and entertaining and the North goodies were very much appreciated by all competitors. »

Maurice « Prof » O’Connell from North Sails Ireland said, « North Sails have worked closely with J-Boats, going all the way back to the launch of the J/24 in 1975. Our 3Di upwind sails and « V-Series » downwind sails are proving to be a fantastic investment for J/109 sailors and are more durable and faster than ever. We look forward to supporting the class at this year’s Nationals and East Coasts ».
