Visit to North Sails - Gosport

Our first winter event for autumn 2017 is a visit to North Sails in Gosport on 21st October

60 years ago, LOWELL NORTH started North Sails with AN ENGINEER’S LOVE OF TECHNOLOGY AND AN UNWAVERING FAITH IN THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD. Today they are one of the most successful Sailmakers , providing the ultimate in sail technology for Ben Ainslie's America's Cup Yachts to name but one.

We will commence the tour at 1030 at their superb new premises between Fareham and Gosport. We will be given a full guided tour of the facility, state of the art sail making will be on display. We will then be shown a presentation on the Volvo Ocean Race which will be followed by a discussion on Sails and sail making and finally a Q & A.

We will then finish with a pub lunch somewhere local.
