In 1957 there was an engineer and Star sailor named Lowell North who thought he could make a faster sail. In a small garage in San Diego he started the base for the company that is North Sails today. By combining his scientific knowledge with the traditional sailmaker's craft, Lowell quickly turned the sailmaker's world upside down with faster sail designs, innovative material developments and a consistent production process.
