Liv and Micah Wilkinson are the newest members of the NZL Sailing Team, but feel they have emerged at just the right time as the Nacra 17 moved into foiling. The pair have considerable foiling experience, having won the 2016 Red Bull Foiling Generation world title and they were 10th at the 2017 Nacra world championships despite taking possession of their foiling catamaran only three days before racing started.

Liv’s talents have been widely recognised and she was invited to join the Magenta Project’s team for the World Match Racing Tour, even helming the team in Croatia. She also helmed a Portuguese wildcard entry in the Madeira leg of the Extreme Sailing Series (Micah was a member of the crew).
