North Goes South

One
of the consequences of the shit fight between Ellison and Bertarelli has
been obviously enough, a loss of business for builders, spar makers, and
other gear suppliers. We’d think, however that North Sails will probably
take the biggest hit. Sure, most all the AC teams design and finish all
their own sails, but they almost all got their mains and headsails from
North. We hear it was upwards of $20 million a year in terms of AC business
for North, business that likely cannot be found elsewhere. That’s a lot
of lost revenue, ain’t it?
