North Sails as low-key AWE leader

Long dominant in top-end yacht sails, North makes SkySails’ Ship Kites, already calculated to 2MW performance right from the cradle.

Great partnership! Are NS and SkySails tied-at-the-hip? It seems North may be the key wing maker in early industrial AWE. It seeks a growth market; branded clothing is not the right-stuff, AWE is. SkySails is the most industrially accomplished AWE venture so far. The SkySails-North partnership has a hot early lead before the game becomes who builds comparable wings cheapest, and original branding doesn’t matter much. Still, North Sails is the current leading wing-maker in AWE, with SkySails as a key AWE domain partner.
