William McKenzie

Isaac McHardie and William McKenzie are forging a good partnership, and the pair won two world titles in 2019. They collected gold at the under-23 49er world championships in Norway and also finished on top at the Red Bull Foiling Generation world finals. 

They also finished an impressive 11th at the 2019 49er world championships in Auckland and were second at the World Cup Series in Genoa earlier in the year.

McKenzie, like many Kiwi kids, initially started sailing in an Optimist and went to the 2012 Optimist world championships in the Dominican Republic.
