Monday December 1st 2003, Author: Ian Wallace, Location: United Kingdom
North Sails is further expanding its activities in Ireland with the opening of a new sales and service facility. Due to start business in time for the 2004 season, this new operation will be located in the Cork area and will be headed up by Nigel Young, one of North Sail’s most experienced managers.

Nigel Young is currently manager of North Sails’ One Design loft and his move to Ireland brings a wealth of sailing and sailmaking experience into the country. A talented sailor across a number of classes from dinghies to keelboats, Young’s Melges 24 sailing team is currently ranked World No.1. His move to Ireland will enable North Sails to provide the highest quality local service, offering advice, sail design, and sail repair for the cruisers, racing keelboats and the many popular one-design keelboat and dinghy classes thatenjoy the spectacular sailing waters of Ireland.

Cork is a natural location for the North Sails office, as it boasts the oldest established yacht club in the world, with many internationally acclaimed events taking place in the area.

Commenting on his move Young said, “I am delighted to be setting up North Sails (Ireland), and look forward to continuing the good work North Sails already does in Ireland”. North Sails already has representation in the Dublin area, and the Dublin office will continue to provide its high quality service, and will benefit from Young’s 22 years sailmaking experience.
