In the process of forming Ocean Family Foundation in 2018, North Sails, one of the world’s leading sails makers, chose to partner with us.
Since 1958 North Sails has provided sails to allow our customers to enjoy the sea and ocean. Our customers compete, break records, and go on great adventures. She now needs our help as we receive more and more reports of vast plastic pollution and over fishing. It is time to free the sea.
NORTH SAILS: A STORY OF PASSION
In 1957, the American engineer, sailor and Olympic gold medallist Lowell North decided to realise his dream: to manufacture the fastest racing sails in the world.
Year after year, race after race, Lowell North and his team worked tirelessly to design and create the technology and high-performance textures stronger than water and wind that would outperform the industry.
In 1989, the same grit and innovative spirit were embodied in the first apparel collection, a new wave of clothing and accessories for men, women and kids who shared his passion for the sea, suitable for their busy city lives.
NORTH SAILS: A STORY OF COMMITMENT
North Sails’ mission is to “Go Beyond”, to push the limits of performance, continue to set new, higher goals and surpass the competition.
Exploration, innovation and the strong bond with the sea are North Sails’ core values which drive the brand’s aesthetic and ethical vision, as well as fuel its commitment to preserve and protect the environment.
