INTRODUCING MARK ROBINS
New sales man in Western Australia
Mark (“Skid”) Robins, a Sales Expert based in Western Australia, has been sailmaking since the mid 1980s. He started with Elvstrom Sails WA; when that closed in 1992 he started Robins Sails, and quickly claimed a healthy share of the Western Australian market.
Mark started sailing as a junior at South Perth Yacht Club, which led to success at a state and national level in various dinghy classes. He won three consecutive Western Australian championships in the S80 class and represented Western Australia at a national level as crew and helm in the Ben Lexcen Cup. He also competed in the Australian keelboat championships in Victoria, sailed at Hamilton Island Race Week, and added his experience as both sailmaker and trimmer to a number of WA’s offshore racers.
“I’m excited to be able to offer our customers the latest in sailmaking technology with the 3Di product,” Mark says. “I have seen sail construction evolve since the 1980s, and I’m looking forward to future developments with North Sails.”
