North Sails Ireland's Update on the RL Sailing Figaro 3 Campaign

4th August 2020
Dubliner's Kenneth Rumball and Pamela Lee Dubliner's Kenneth Rumball and Pamela Lee

Learning to sail fast offshore in a foil assisted one-design race machine is not an easy task but that's the challenge Dubliner's Kenneth Rumball and Pamela Lee have lined up as they embark on their doublehanded Figaro3 campaign. Here, sailmaker, Nigel Young of North Sails Ireland reports on feedback received from France on the fledgeling Irish campaign.

We got a lovely note from Kenny and Pam about the new sails for the RL Racing Team last week. Read it here.

It's always nice to get feedback like this from our clients as they compete at all levels and all over the World.

3Di is unique in the World of sailmaking and the Figaro 3 class is another example of the benefits of 3Di in action.

Good Luck to Kenny and Pam as they compete in one of the toughest Offshore One Design classes in the World. Here at North Sails Ireland, we are delighted to be playing a small part in this campaign.

Keep up the good work and sail FAST.

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.
