|Mike Boston is a third generation sailmaker – his family, from Mt. Clemens, MI, started sailing in the late 1800s.
Mike started working for North Sails in 2007. Currently focusing on the Tartan 10 class and the DN iceboat class, he previously focused heavily on the Santa Cruz 70, IOR 50, J24 and S2 7.9 classes. Mike’s sailing career includes three Tartan 10 North American Championships (2008, 2009, 2011), an S2 7.9 North American Championship (1991), MORC International Champion in 1998, 1St overall at SORC in 1995, and 1st overall at Key West Race Week in 2000 and 2001.
Mike spends most of his free time sailing, especially in the summer, but occasionally you can find him tinkering with his 1970 Dodge Super Bee!
