NZL Sailing Team introduced, including RS:X windsurfing sailors

The Governor General, sponsors and friends of Yachting New Zealand were today introduced to members of the NZL Sailing Team at a team launch in Auckland.

Those attending also watched as the names of two new Elliot 6 metre Women’s match racing yachts were revealed.

The NZL Sailing Team includes New Zealand’s top tier Olympic campaigners with their sights firmly set on Weymouth 2012 which is now just two years away. The current members have proven themselves as this country’s key prospects for Olympic sailing medals as we count down the next Games.

National qualification and Olympic Team selection takes place in the months leading up to the Olympic Games and there is still room for others to prove themselves before then.
