RYA NI is hold its Cruising Conference in Royal North of Ireland Yacht Club in Cultra, Co. Down this Saturday Jan 26th starting at 9.30am.

As part of it, North Sails Ireland's Prof O'Connell will be giving a talk on "Cruising Sails - New Technologies And Developments".

"North Sails are industry leaders in advancing cruising sails design and manufacturing techniques. The "trickle down effect" from our winning Vendee Globe, Volvo Ocean race and Round The World record breaking campaigns greatly benefits our cruising clients and I am really looking forward to a good interactive session in RNIYC this Saturday, " O'Connell told Afloat.ie.
