Southern Spars mourns loss of Terry Kohler


Southern Spars’ thoughts are with the family of Terry Kohler. Terry’s passing represents a huge loss to the worldwide sailing community. As the owner of Southern Spars from 2008 until 2014, he helped to foster the strong bond between Southern Spars and North Sails, which he had owned since the mid-1980s. Terry formed the North Technology Group and put in motion the concept of “The Engine Above the Deck.”

CEO of North Technology Group, Tom Whidden says “His passion for sailing is what made him a wonderful owner to work for. He was never egocentric about any of the decisions, and was a great motivator, everyone always worked very hard for him. And ultimately, he turned into a fantastic friend.”
