Offshore legends recall their around-the-world journeys with North Sails 3Di The level of participation and success witnessed in offshore sailing these past few years is perhaps unprecedented, and the advances in sailmaking are proven. This week, North Sails will release exclusive interviews with legendary offshore skippers Thomas Coville, Francis Joyon, and Armel Le Cléac’h about their experience sailing around-the-world. Varying in time elapsed, choice of boat, and whether solo or crewed, they all have two things in common: North Sails 3Di, and a new world record.
