Doyle Sails Solent are no stranger to legendary sailors joining their team and 2020 shows no sign of slowing down with Nicholas ‘Nin’ O’Leary strengthening the UK based team.
Nicholas 'Nin' O'Leary
Doyle Sails Solent is excited to announce a new partnership with Nicholas ‘Nin’ O’Leary to better serve the rapidly growing sailing industry in Ireland, a direct link to world-class knowledge and expertise, that’s never been available until today.
Nin O’Leary grew up in Cork and has sailed from the age of 5 and in the last 10 years has raced keelboats at a very high level around the world, and in between competed in his fair share of world championships. Nin comes with extensive firsthand experience with and knowledge of Doyle Sails – with a number of his Grand Prix and Superyacht campaigns being ‘powered by Doyle’.
Nin is on the pulse of Grand Prix racing, and an Irish native, so it’s no surprise that he has been a valuable part of the Vendee Globe favourite, Alex Thomson’s campaign aboard Hugo Boss. In 2017 Nin and Alex Thomson completed the Fastnet Race doublehanded where they met what could have been half of Cork at the rock in their ribs, ski boats, yachts and whatever else floated.
With experience ranging from Optimists through to helming Superyachts, and having sailed in nearly all high profile events world-wide, Nin is well placed to offer sound advice to all sailors looking to gain more knowledge and experience, while ensuring their sails are totally fit for purpose and ready to perform at their best.
