North Sails – History in the Making
27th July 2015
North Sails is excited to present History in the Making, a panel discussion celebrating the Squadron’s Bicentenary event and featuring the top names in sailing. Seated will be America’s Cup skipper Sir Ben Ainslie of Land Rover BAR, the defending skipper of Oracle Team USA Jimmy Spithill, and skipper of Team SCA’s all-female Volvo Ocean Race team, Sam Davies. Led by North Sails president Ken Read, the discussion will celebrate the heritage of our sport alongside current world-class sailing events, and include expert advice for racing on the Solent in the week ahead.
“The format for the panel stems from our North U Regatta Services program, which we are excited to roll out on a new level for the Squadron’s Bicentenary Regatta. North U is rooted in practical analysis and increased performance through applied group debriefs, dock talks, and local knowledge panels,” said Ken Read, Volvo Ocean Race Skipper of PUMA Ocean Racing (08-09 and 11-12), America’s Cup skipper of Stars & Stripes (2000, 2003) and America’s Cup coach and strategist to Young America (1999).
“History in the Making” will take this concept next-level by drawing intel from the best in sailing today. The panel will be held at Cowes Yacht Haven, on Monday July 27th at 1700hrs. Entry is free and open to all competitors.
