Glenn Cook has joined North Sails as senior sail designer. He will be focused primarily on bringing his experience and skill set to the preliminary design and engineering stages for new superyacht builds and refits, and acting as a link to the product team to ensure the right sails are manufactured and delivered for each owner, according to a company press release.

Cook was recently head designer at Doyle Sails North America. He has worked on notable projects such as the 482-foot (147m) S/Y A, the 348-foot (106m) S/Y Black Pearl and the 289-foot (88m) S/Y Maltese Falcon. He also has years of experience in software development and is expected to play a critical role in developing the North Sails Design Suite, with a particular focus on the Flow and MemBrain programs. The suite of in-house design software is key to analyzing and developing 3Di sail structures to create optimal custom layouts, according to the company.

Cook will be based in Marblehead, Massachusetts.
