Earlier this month the North Sails Design Team hosted a collaborative Grand Prix racing debrief at the company's 3D sailmaking headquarters in Minden, NV.

Attendees brought a range of expertise to the discussion, including the TP52, RC44 and Maxi 72, as well as emerging classes such as the Melges 40 and ClubSwan 50. The two day agenda also covered discussion in complementary fields of software development and product engineering, led by North Sails Lead Programmer, Michael Richelsen.

Strength in design has kept North Sails ahead of the curve in providing the fastest sail shapes for clients throughout the sailing world. The design brief is an example of how the North Sails global team works together to secure a common foundation and commitment to technical excellence. As a result of the meeting, North Designers and stakeholders worldwide will receive a "Trend Report" for key classes and sail types with reflection on how these can affect designs for the wider market.
