SENIOR SAIL DESIGNER GLENN COOK
JOINS NORTH SAILS 


The World’s Leading Sailmaker Continues To Attract The Brightest Stars In The Superyacht Industry
 
Senior Sail Designer and Superyacht Sail Design Expert Glenn Cook will join North Sails from October 2019. After 16 years with Doyle Sails North America as Head Designer, Glenn will play a key role as part of North’s global Superyacht team. He has an impressive track record of leading the design work for some of the most notable Superyachts to hit the water in the last 15 years. Standout projects include the iconic 147 metre Sailing Yacht A, as well as the eye catching 106 metre Black Pearl and 88 metre Maltese Falcon. For Sailing Yacht A in particular, Glenn developed sailing systems over the course of four years in partnership with Dykstra Naval Architects, Magma Structure, Future Fibres, Cachini and Bamar.




Commenting on the new hire, North’s Director of Design and Engineering JB Braun concluded, “Glenn joining the North Sails team is another important step in ensuring we have the very best people working on our global Superyacht team. North is known for its groundbreaking 3Di technology and world beating products, but we know that success only comes from the people working within the company. All our product innovations and breakthroughs come from the dedication, hard work and skills of our team. And complete customer satisfaction is our goal. I have no doubt Glenn, with his unprecedented experience and talents, will be a key part of our ongoing commitment to our clients and everyone will benefit.”
