Welcome to Summer Fridays. More than just an extra day on the weekend, Summer Fridays are the inspiration for adventure, pushing the limits and chasing the sun to the horizon. At North Sails, we want to help our customers achieve their best weekend of sailing yet, whether it’s a few nights at anchor in your secret spot or setting off on a bluewater adventure around the globe. Summer Fridays are about more than sailing; they are about what the wind in our sails enables us to achieve.

We’re ready for brighter days filled with sunshine and weekends full of adventure. Don’t forget to send us a postcard (or just hashtag on social media #NSSummerFridays!)
