Greetings to all J109 sailors! As the summer draws to a close and our seasonal pricing programme starts (please do get in touch for special offers now!), we thought it would be timely to reflect on what has been an amazing year of achievements for our wonderful clients in the class writes Maurice O'Connell of North Sails Ireland
When we looked over these results, it's a testament not only to their wonderful sailing skills, boat preparation and organisation but also to the speed and durability of our products. North Sails J109 sails are very very fast, are easy to set up and trim and stay very fast (and thus delivering tremendous value) for a long long time. When it comes to quality, we don't cut corners.
So, here goes the 2019 "medal table" from the start of the season, congratulations again to you all.
