James Allsopp, who has grown up around the sailmaking business, follows his father Jim Allsopp’s footsteps as he begins his sailmaking career with North Sails. “James has a lot of drive and is well-liked by customers and local sailors so I think he will be a great addition to our team,” said Jonathan Bartlett, loft manager at North Sails in Annapolis. “James will start by completing a two-month “North Sails Training Camp” where he will spend at least a week at our sail lofts in Fort Lauderdale, Chicago, Portsmouth, RI and Milford, CT to learn from some of our more experienced salesmen and sailmakers before he begins working here full-time in January,” Bartlett explained. “We have so many great resources within North Sails and sending James to learn from some of our other senior sales representatives is a fantastic opportunity that will give him the chance to learn from the best,” Bartlett concluded.

A 2011 graduate of the US Naval Academy, James Allsopp continued his education as a Composites Technology student at the International Yacht Restoration School in Bristol, RI in 2013. At the Naval Academy, James was involved with several big boat design projects including the design of a 42-foot oceanographic vessel for use on the Chesapeake Bay as well as a 65 foot offshore racing sailboat. He has worked as a yacht broker with Eastport Yacht Company and is an avid sailor on everything from J/70s to Maxi Yachts.

“I have grown up surrounded by the North Sails ‘family’ and I am humbled and excited about my new role at North,” James said. “I have started by working in Fort Lauderdale training with Mike Toppa and Zach Mason and now I am in Chicago training with veteran sales representative Perry Lewis. This experience is invaluable to me and I will work hard over the next few weeks to learn as much as I can so I can meet the demands and expectations of clients on the Chesapeake Bay,” he said. “I am eager to see what the future holds and hope to have a long career with North Sails,” Allsopp concluded.
