Hetairos Gains Performance Boost With New Sails
Perfect Set Up From The Start In St Barths
 
The 218-foot ketch Hetairos is a longtime client of North Sails and was an early adopter of 3Di sails within the superyacht crowd. Their recent success and final-day push in securing Overall Winner at the St Barths Bucket is a testament to great teamwork, both onboard and with their sailmaker.

Hetairos has a long-standing relationship with North Sails and is very happy with the sail performance that we have onboard, explained Captain Graham Newton. The main and mizzen have been halfway around the world and seen plenty of action, yet the shape still looks like it did on day one. We sailed with a new North race blade and J4 in St Barths. They set up perfectly right out of the bags. The performance increase was clear to see, and no doubt helped us in claiming a hard-fought win in a very competitive class.
