North Sails Ireland was to the fore at Volvo Cork Week with NS Ireland–powered boats claiming victories and podium positions across most of the IRC and one-design classes.

Nigel Young, Maurice "Prof" O'Connell and Shane Hughes from the North Sails Ireland team were all afloat assisting their customers around the racetracks. Service manager Richard Marshall worked late into the evenings in the sail loft assisting customers overnight with minor repairs and service work.

Speaking at the event in Crosshaven, North Sails Ireland's Nigel Young said, "once again, Cork Week delivered the weather and our clients delivered the results! We were delighted to see so many fast North Sails-powered boats going so well. Well done guys for a fantastic week".
