About this title


Book by Levitt, Michael

From the Inside Flap:

This is a story about North Sails, the largest and most visible sailmaker in the world.

North has been the dominant sailmaker on every America's Cup Defender and challenger since 1980; North Sails wins more Olympic gold medals and one-design championships than sails made by any manufacturer.

Even its cruising sails win races and set records. North is also the number one manufacturer of cruising sails.

As the cliche has it: "The difference between a man and a boy is the price of his toys." For 41 years, North Sails has been building eminently sophisticated toys for eminently sophisticated and successful men - and of course - women.

If a toy shop - or, perhaps, because it is a toy shop - the quality of its technology, thinking, product and people has been impressive.

Sailing may not be a big-time sport, but look at the people who do it. Or do it and work in it.
