North Sails: News Details


Warsash Spring Championship Weekend

Judith Wilkinson


It was good to see some real spring conditions for the first of the Warsash Spring Championship Weekends out in the Solent. North powered J/70's added some great scores to the series results winning all 6 races over the weekend.

In the first race the North Sails boat suffered gear failure making for a late start which gave them the 3rd in this race and North powered owned by Ian Atkins took the top spot. For the next 2 races on the Saturday and all 3 on the Sunday everything went to plan and they scored 1st in all.

For the full results see here.

This weekend on the other side of the Atlantic also saw the finish of Charleston Race Week and another win for a North powered J/70 'Helly Hansen' helmed by Tim Healy.  Catch up with the J/70 discussion panel from the event here.
