O'Rourke opts for North sails
Ger O'Rourke has called on the expertise of North Sails’ designer Gautier Sergent to complete Delta Lloyd's sail wordrobe.
North Sails designed and built sails for both ABN Amro boats in the last race but even so making the sail inventory with a two month deadline has been a tall order.
We've got a favour to ask
More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.
Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.
So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
