Huge congratulations to Peter Dunlop, Vicky Cox, and their wonderful team on "Mojito".

They had an awesome season culminating in them winning the Wolf's Head Trophy for being the overall winner of the 2022 ISORA series. TREMENDOUS job, guys!

The ISORA series is a gruelling event, spanning four months of offshore day and night racing. Reliability and speed are gold in this event.

Speaking after emerging victorious in the ISORA series on Saturday, co-owner Vicky Cox said, "Mojito has been powered 100% by North Sails since day one. We love the sails and the support from the North Sail teams in both the UK and Ireland has been fantastic".

In addition, they also recorded these fabulous results:-

  • Cork week coastal class - 1st overall
  • Welsh IRC National championships - 1st overall
  • Abersoch Keelboat week IRC1 - 1st overall

All powered 100% by North Sails!
