Scottish Series organisers are delighted to announce the world’s largest sail manufacturers, North Sails as one of their sponsors for the 2015 event. This support will see North Sails One Design agents for Scotland, Sailingfast, at the event with a free crane to help all small boat competitors in and out of the water.

 

With the 2015 Scottish Series just 14 weeks away, this is the latest in an exciting line up of announcements from one of the racing world’s most respected events. Commenting on the new sponsors Scottish Series Chairman Dane Ralson said he was, “Delighted to welcome North Sails One Design  and Sailingfast aboard what promises to be an exciting four days of competitive racing.” He continued, “As Scotland’s premier yachting regatta we take our competitors requirements very seriously. That’s why North Sails’ involvement is so important as it will provide a crucial service for our small boat competitors.”

 

Sailingfast has worked closely with the team at the North Sails One Design loft for over four years, delivering some of the very best sails to Scottish sailors.  Having raced at Scottish Series for many years, Sailingfast owner Emma Hepplewhite is delighted to be supporting the event. After her involvement during the 40th anniversary celebrations last year in a volunteer capacity, Emma says, “It was an eye opener to see Scottish Series ‘behind the scenes’ and understand quite how much work goes in to the regatta both on and off the water from a race management perspective. As an enthusiastic competitor for many years, I’m pleased that, in our role as North Sails One Design Scotland, we can put something back and hopefully encourage more One Design fleets to get involved.”

 

There are already five VX Ones entered for Silvers Marine Scottish Series 2015 including the one Emma will be sailing in.
