North Sails origins date back to when it was founded in 1957 by Lowell North, an American sailor and Olympic Gold Medalist. North, an engineer, methodically focused on building sails that were faster than any competitor's. Year after year, North, and his team, pioneered new innovative technologies that conquered wind and water, explored the oceans, and won races.
