Skip Dieball

Skip has been a member of the North Sails team since 1997 and is currently a sales consultant based in the Midwest USA. He has over 25 years of industry experience under his belt and has worked in our lofts in Detroit, Cleveland, and Toledo. Skip joined North because he admired the products, technology and commitment we offered to our clients and he wanted to be part of a well-respected team.

Skip has been active in one-design and offshore sailing as far back as he can remember, and he has won multiple National and World Championships, including the 2015 Etchells Worlds in Hong Kong. Skip has also received multiple nominations for the Rolex Yachtsman Of The Year and US Sailing’s Sportsman Of The Year, keeping him on the cutting edge of sailboat racing.

Earlier this month, September 7-9, Skip and his team won the Lightning Pan Am Trials, securing a berth at the Pan Am Games, representing the United States in Lima, Peru in 2019.

When asked to offer advice to youth sailors, Skip aims to encourage the fun side of the sport:

 

 “Don’t get too wrapped up in the competitive side of sailing. This is a lifelong sport and it is important to HAVE FUN, whether it is competing against friends in a club race or sailing with your parents to an anchorage.”
