Vento Solare Featured in North Sails News

J/109 Vento Solare

– Great Vento Solare Program Coverage –


Recently I was contacted by North Sails marketing and asked if they could take some video and interview the crew after the Conanicut Around the Island Race.  Before and during the race, the North Sails team shot video from both a drone and on the water.  After the race, Ellinor Walters from North Sails marketing conducted interviews at the dock with the crew.  The results are prominently featured in 12 September North Sails News article Trusting in North at this link.  The video below is included in the article.   By the way – the sails in this video are the same ones shredded two weeks before in the cell that blew through Newport during our Tuesday night race. Eric Wakefield and the North Sails service team were able to repair them to almost as good as new.
