North Sails Ireland service crew will be on hand in force for the VDLR regatta 2019. Since way back in 2004 North Sails Service Team have been on hand at every major Irish regatta to keep our clients and any other competitors on the water racing wherever possible writes loft manager Nigel Young.
In the last 19 years of service, we have only missed repairing one or possibly two sails overnight which is a record we are very proud of. We are not fussy however our first priority is always North Sails clients but over the years we have repaired hundreds of non-North Sails in an attempt to keep the show on the road.
Our dedication to this cause is mainly down to one man, Richard Marshall. He has a personal record to keep intact and this year will be no different.
Two years ago we were the only sail service on site at the VDLR regatta and we looked after everyone. My North Sails Ireland colleague Shane Hughes and I worked late into the night to look after every team possible with Maurice (Prof) O'Connell looking after the sail collection and delivery after sailing.. Its a challenge we are delighted to pick up and 2019 will be no different.
A small tear or a major blow out? Give us a call and we will move heaven and earth to keep you sailing and your sails in one piece.
This year the full squad are on site so please call any of us or meet us at the top of the marina ramp next to the North Sails box after sailing and we will take good care of you.
Enjoy the regatta and you know where to find us if you are in need.
