Congratulations to all the North Sails Ireland customers for their great results in the recently held 1720 Baltimore Cup in West Cork.
First overall was Robert O'Leary flying North 3Di Mainsail and Large Jib.
Second overall was Anthony O'Leary flying the same combination of North 3Di sails.
The Durcan Family sailing Team T-Bone was 4th overall Flying 2017 3DL upwind sails and excelling downwind with the latest T-6 spinnaker design.
T-Bone was the only boat to win two races........Great to see this class enjoying such close racing in the beautiful waters of Baltimore.
Back in April 2019, I wrote a piece called "The Trickledown effect" this piece talks about how 3Di started life in the America's Cup and is now on the smallest One Design boats including the 1720. Well worth a read......
Also whilst we are on the subject of 3Di take a look here to understand exactly how it's made. Totally unique in the sailmaking world, when you watch this video it will go some way to explaining why a 3Di sail might cost a little more than a conventional 2D sail.
We look forward to the next 1720 regatta at the end of August as part of the Cork 300 celebrations.
