Experience and knowledge to help Opti sailors perform even better with North Sails

North Sails is excited to announce Juan Carlos Romero as the North Sails Optimist Head Coach in North America. Working with the North Optimist team, Juan will assist in developing sails and coordinating educational programs for Optimist sailors looking for opportunities to improve their performance.

“Juan brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to help Opti sailors perform even better with North sails, and develop new ideas for designs moving forward.” said Tim Healy, President of North Sails One Design.

Juan is one of the most accomplished and experienced coaches in the Optimist class with nearly 25 years coaching experience. Born in Ecuador, Juan has coached at many top programs such as the Annapolis Yacht Club, St. Petersburg Yacht Club, Lauderdale Yacht Club, Coral Reef Yacht Club and is currently the Sailing Director at the Key Biscayne Yacht Club in Florida. Juan has also coached the Ecuadorian and United States National Teams in international events such as South Americans, North Americans and Worlds.

“I am really excited to be a part of the North Sails team and I am looking forward to helping the North sailors in the Optimist Class!” said Juan.

“Juan is the perfect addition to the North Sails’ Optimist program. His experience and excellent demeanor combine to create a unique ability to explain the nuances of sail trim to young sailors, making him a one-of-a-kind weapon for us. We know he will share his knowledge, take care of our customers, and represent our brand with great character. We are thrilled to have Juan as our Head Coach!” said Zeke Horowitz, North Sails Class Leader for the Optimist.
