NZ Extreme Sailing Team (NZL)

The team, which is new to the 2017 season, was formed to give New Zealand’s elite youth sailors a launch pad into the cutting-edge world of foiling multihull racing, and mixes New Zealand’s best match racing talent with the country’s finest fresh-faced youth sailors. Skippered by Match Racing legend Greame Sutherland, this summer the team has been joined by America’s Cup sailor Josh Junior, a cyclist on board Emirates Team New Zealand as they sailed to victory this year.
