North Sails Ireland have enjoyed a strong connection with Bill Gladstone and the North U program over the last few years. 

Back in the early years of North Sails Ireland Bill came over and did two tours of duty around the Island of Ireland as our politicians like to say!

I was looking at the revamped North U website only this morning and thought it would be good to share this with all the Afloat readers.

North U has been in existence for many years now and these guys really know their stuff. There is so much information on the site its really worth a read to see if there is anything specific you and your crew can take from the North U Team.

There are also plenty of Free Downloads here to give you a real taste of what North U is all about.

Being part of the North Sails Family it's not all about selling sails and results. Education is top of the list for North Sails and you can see that online and in the field.

When you buy a North Sail you are working with experts and part of the fun of the job is educating our customers to improve their sailing and performance.

Thanks to Bill Gladstone and the team at North U we have some resources to share with you and your crew.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
