Lowell North, a man with a passion for sailing, opened his first sail loft at the age of 27. His passion for sailing was reflected in Summer Olympic games in 1964 and 1968 when he won gold medal in the Star class and brown medal in the Dragon class.
Lowell North is not only a talented sportsman, but also a great engineer. When constructing sails, he focuses not only on artistic form but also on professional attitude to creating. That’s why, Lowell North gathered a team of sailors and technicians who are all passionate for sailing. This phenomenal team includes: Peter Barrett, John Marshall and Terry Kohler. North called them tigers. Each and every one of them contributed to improved sail construction. After some time, another tiger, Tom Whidden, joined the team.
He had an incredible flair for business and managed to combine sailing with business by moving NORTH SAILS from the loft on a sailing market.That way white and blue brand reached Italy.
