From Palma, Spain to San Diego, California, and down to the island of Antigua, North Sails Grand Prix clients were faster than ever claiming victories across the globe.

Starting in Palma, clients won across six divisions, ranging from the Wally to the Swan 45 Classes. Teams were tested with little to no margin of error, and most division wins came down to the last day of racing. Congratulations to Wally Magic Blue, TP52 Azzurra, Melges 40 Inga From Sweden, ClubSwan 50 Earlybird, and Swan 45 Elena Nova for your first place overall finish.

In San Diego, CA, close competition at the Yachting Cup challenged sailors in the Pac52 fleet, with Invisible Hand placing on top of the podium. The Yachting Cup was the first event of the year for the Pac52 class. The fleet will meet again in Long Beach, CA at the end of June.

Beautiful sea breeze and perfect waves for surfing at Antigua Sailing Week gave sailors great racing and ideal conditions, and North powered clients winning across six classes. A special congratulations to 3Di-powered Grand Prix clients for their podium sweep in CSA 1; Warrior claiming first overall, Black Pearl for her second place finish, and Riff Raff, placing third. Warrior also claimed the new race record in the famous Peters & May Round The Island Race.

North-power dominated first and second place in CSA 2, with Farr 115 Sojana* and VO60 Ambersail. CSA 3 also saw competitive sailing, with Farr 65 Spirit of Juno taking the win. Lord Nelson Trophy winner Sojana* was also the best performing yacht in Antigua. CSA 4 second place finisher was RP 37 TAZ, powered by 3Di.
