What's Happening at West Coast Sailing
This entry was posted on 12/12/2012.
Have you ever been to Hixson, Tennessee or Buford, Georgia? The Southeast U.S. is home to a few of our most valued vendors and last week George had the opportunity to visit them. First stop was Buford, home of Gill North America and Zhik USA. We talk to the folks at Gill and Zhik on the phone almost everyday, so it's nice to actually put names to faces! George was very impressed with their operations - shelves and shelves of apparel and accessories! Maybe he even got the insight on some new gear... our lips are sealed! Following the quick tour of Buford, George headed up north to spend a few days with the team at McLaughlin Boatworks in Hixson. Check out a few of the photos below of a batch of Opti's getting laid up as well at some shots from the warehouse tours at Gill and Zhik. Big thanks to everyone at McLaughlin, Gill, and Zhik for sharing some of your insight - we're looking forward to another great year of promoting the growth of small boat sailing!
