Meet the nine Kiwis who will be tackle the latest edition of the Volvo Ocean Race.
The America's Cup is going on a national tour of the regions to give New Zealanders the chance to see the trophy and also inspire a new generation of young Kiwis to get into the sport.
The first batch of winners for this year's Volvo Yachting Excellence Awards have been announced and feature world champions, America's Cup winners and individuals who are recognised for outstanding service to sailing in this country.
This year’s 49er world championships will be a little different to those of the recent past, not least of all because Peter Burling and Blair Tuke won’t win.

Our clubs do a wonderful job producing good sailors, which is why Kiwis can be found at the forefront of the sport worldwide. We thought it was timely to acknowledge the clubs who played a hand in Emirates Team New Zealand’s success.
Innovation and excellence were key factors in Emirates Team New Zealand’s dominance in claiming the America’s Cup this morning, including an immensely talented bunch of Kiwi sailors.
