North Sails NEWS

March 8, 2015

North Sails is pleased to announce that world champion sailor and CEO of Melges Europe, Federico Michetti, has joined North Sails as a performance advisor. Michetti will play a key role within North’s Class Sail Development (CSD) team and will be a leader and class expert for the Melges 20, 24 and 32 classes.

Based in Milan, Italy, Federico has spent his entire life sailing and has won five Melges 24 World Championships; two Melges 32 World Championships; and two ILC World Championships. He is also a two-time winner of the Farr 40 European Championship and three-time winner of the Melges 24 European Championship just to name a few of his sailing accomplishments.

“I have spent my whole life racing with North sails and my mentors and best friends all work with North so it is a natural choice for me to now join the North Sails team. I look forward to bringing my sailing knowledge and experience to the table to help improve sail designs and tuning guides for the Melges 20, 24 and 32 classes to start with,” said Michetti. “I am also excited to work closely with North customers to be sure they understand the superior technology that goes into every North sail built.”

“Federico is a well-known sailor among the Melges and one design circuits and has a proven track record, winning multiple world and European championships which makes him a great asset to the North Sails team and to our customers,” said Paul Westlake, head of Global Sales for North Sails. “In addition to working for Melges Europe, Federico has been team manager for many high profile programs and is currently the project manager and trimmer onboard the Maxi 72 Robertissima III. We are thrilled that Fede has decided to join the North team,” concluded Westlake.
