North's Sailing Performance Analysts are working together to improve on-the-water performance for North clients (and non-clients!) North representatives out on the water at local regattas to take photos and video, and conducting post-race debriefs at regattas you may be attending. This service is free and will be available at a number of regattas in 2015. Don't miss this awesome opportunity to keep your performance curve upwardly mobile!

TESTIMONIAL: Just a note to thank you and Chuck for the J105 speed seminar on Saturday night. We took your advice to heart on Sunday, and I think you'll agree that it was working well - especially in that 3rd race! But for some boat handling and driving issues, we'd have had some very nice scores on Sunday. Overall, though, we're very happy with the knowledge both you and Chuck imparted on team Trio.

Thanks again for the help, and I'd love some more photos of our boat from Sunday, for comparison to Thursday's photos - if you have any.

TESTIMONIAL: We use North Sails on both our J/70 and J/105. On a personal level, after more than 20 years of racing, I can honestly say I’ve never learned more about sail trim and rig set-up than I have with the North Sails Client Services team at various regattas over the past few months. Their on-the-water guidance combined with post-race debriefing, while frequently humbling, is a great benefit to their customers and unique among sailmakers. And, as an organizer of the recent J/70 and J/105 North American Championship regattas in Annapolis, I can confirm that the presence of the NSCS team, including help from Will Keyworth and Dave Scott ahead of each regatta, was an important aspect of making those events as successful as they were. Racers of all abilities flocked to the NSCS table each night to watch the slide shows and get guidance from sailors who are the best in the business.
