North Sails Ireland has announced the opening of our new Service loft in Wicklow, close to the main Dublin sailing centres at Howth and Dun Laoghaire.
Shane Hughes is the man behind the new operation and he is more than qualified for the job. Shane has been a big part of North Sails since 1999 when he first joined the company and is a fully trained time-served sailmaker.
Having previously managed the service floor for North Sails UK in Gosport, Hughes is no stranger to the world of sail service. He was born in Dublin and began his racing career at the age of nine at Howth Yacht Club. He went on to compete nationally and internationally in Mirrors and 420s and began racing keelboats at the age of 15. As a very experienced sailor, racer, and fully-trained sailmaker, you can rest assured your sails are in very safe hands at North Sails Wicklow.
