Go back sixty years and even Lowell North – the pioneering aerospace engineer who founded North Sails in 1957 – could not have foreseen the incredible progress, the sophistication of the North sails that now dominate the world’s racing fleets.
Lowell knew what he wanted back then. He was driven by the same goals that drive us today – lighter, stronger, more durable, faster shapes. He was the first to bring a scientific approach to material and product testing, as well as analytics-based sail design and performance development.
And now we are bringing this same innovative, analytic, design and development-orientated approach to technical sailing clothes. After all, no one’s performance is optimal when they are wet when they shouldn’t be; or too hot, too cold, or just plain uncomfortable. It was time for foul weather gear for sailors, by sailors. By North Sails.
So when we decided to create our own foul weather gear, we didn’t take it on lightly. We want it to work as advertised – foul weather gear is gear for foul weather, gear that keeps the foul weather out. We started by getting Nigel Musto to lead the project – you probably recognise the name. An accomplished sailor with more than three decades of experience designing (and wearing) some of the best sailing clothing in the world, he was the natural choice
“IN 35 YEARS OF DESIGNING, MAKING AND TESTING FOULIES ON OFFSHORE AND OCEAN RACES, GORE-TEX PRO HAS PROVEN ITSELF TO BE THE ONLY MEMBRANE THAT’S DURABLY WATERPROOF AND BREATHABLE ENOUGH TO TAKE THE ABUSE OUR SPORT THROWS AT IT.”
