Brendan received his Doyle sails just prior to the event and said: “In the 6 years that I have been sailing J24’s, I have purchased sails from various manufacturers. My most recent purchase was a full set of Doyle-MacDiarmid Sails. In 10-12 knots of breeze, I have never had the boat sailing so flat, high and fast before and the result shows with a win in the 2017 J24 Victorian Championships. Thank you to Shane and his team for being a part of my very first win in the J24 class."
