"North Sails have been powering "Joker II" since 2007. They just keep getting better and better and I have no doubt their latest 3Di Raw headsails have been a big factor in our success this year in the ICRA's, Volvo Dun Laoghaire Regatta and now the J109 Nationals. A big Thank You to Prof and the North Sails team for your fantastic support".
These were John Maybury's own words after claiming a third headline victory this year in his J109 "Joker II" at the National Championships in Dublin Bay last weekend.
Congratulations and RESPECT to the "Joker II" team - clearly a bunch of happy campers at the prizegiving - despite me photo bombing!
They were pushed very hard by Pat Kelly's team on "Storm II" who, despite having a 1,3,1 score on day 2, could not quite close the gap. Awesome sailing though.
North Sails provided our ever popular red caps and gear bags as prizes for the event and I had a great time on the water coaching and facilitating the video de-brief afterwards on by BIG birthday - thank you to the J109 fleet for the cake!
From the North Sails Ireland team - Sail FAST.
