2.0 Women's Racing Team

New Zealand Women's Match Racing Team

The 2.0 Racing Team endeavor's to succeed both in our own goals as well as provide a pathway for other young women in the sport of sailing. We intend to do this by breaking down barriers of women in sport as well as being advocates and role models for the conservation of the natural environment.

 

Background

The 2.0 Women's Racing Team represents the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron, New Zealand’s most prestigious Yacht Club and defenders of the 2021 America’s Cup. With only a few women’s match racing events under our belts we are stoked to be ranked 23rd in the world and hope to continue to progress rapidly up the ranks. Whilst the team is newly established, various members of the team have trained and sailed together for close to eight years. We have a shared objective of attending and excelling at the Women’s Match Race Worlds in 2020. To achieve this, we have defined a training and regatta plan for the upcoming season. Our objective for each event we attend is to learn from the experience and apply that newfound knowledge to our training and future events.
