What’s Behind The Name?


What’s Behind The Name?

In this case, North Sails!
If you look at the boat name, the results and the heavily logo’d sail it would be easy to believe that Evolution Sails (the product) had a resounding success in RHKYC’s recent China Coast Regatta which in spite of pretenders to the throne, is still the primary and principle regatta in Asia.

In fact while Evolution Sails (the boat) which was previously known as Island Fling did indeed win the regatta, the mainsail that was/is heavily badged up as ‘Evolution Sails’ is in fact a North 3DL sail – just look at the fibre pattern – in fact it would appear the entire upwind inventory was North 3DL and the downwind sails also. There’s obviously more than one way of promoting your product but this might not be the best one…!

The Evo folks are at least trying. Here’s an OTW report with them and Mr. Clean.
