#NSVictoryList: A Results Packed Week
One Design Clients Secure Top Spots Around The Globe 

In a single weekend, North Sails customers and experts filled the #NSVictoryList with numerous podium finishes from around the globe. On Monday morning, the North Sails office was buzzing with regatta news, including Team Stig’s new title as Melges 20 World Champion. These victories covered a wide range of boats and conditions: everything from light Olympic dinghies to heavy keelboats, racing in 5-25 knots.

In Europe, the Melges 24, J/70, and 5.5M classes saw a strong start to their spring seasons, with Tonu Tonisstu, Carlo Alberini, and Peter Morton each placing on top of their respective podiums. And perhaps the Princess Sofia Trophy 470 and Finn results predict medals for Tokyo 2020? Meanwhile, several time zones to the west, Will Welles and team won both the Mexican Nationals and the J/24 North Americans. This has been a hugely successful week for our customers, and we were overwhelmed and humbled as we pulled this story together.

“Seeing so many results packed into a single weekend fuels the North Sails team to continually advance and make faster sails,” commented Tim Healy, President of North Sails One Design. “Sailmaking has evolved with new technology, new sail cloth, new classes, yet the values Lowell North laid down when building North Sails still ring true today. We are and have always been committed to developing fast one design sails, backed by a team of experts dedicated to helping our customers achieve their goals.”

A huge congratulations to our clients for such incredible results. Seeing you succeed is what this is all about. No matter what class you sail, you can trust in the proven success of North products and support to improve your results. Congratulations to all!
