Northsails 3Di jibs in the RC44 fleet
There isn't much of a story but the following photo caught my attention. The RC44's are currently in Dubai, racing in the Al Maktoum Sailing Trophy. After 3 days of match racing the 9-strong fleet started their fleet races and two of them, Islas Canarias Puerto Calero and Team CEEREF, hit the start line with brand new Northsails 3Di jibs, the very first time in that class, if I'm not mistaken. We'll make sure we have the feedback from the teams on whether such sails make a significant difference in this one-design class.
