After a great 2009 season in Europe, Asia and America we, Waka Racing (Phil Robertson, James Williamson, Garth Ellingham, Sam Bell) have been in preparation for the 2010 season.
With a brand new website, www.wakaracing.com we are all pumped and can’t wait to go!
Our season starts in Korea, from the 6-9th May in the Korea Match Cup Qualifier. After this we will carry on to Europe to start the 2010 campaign where we plan to participate in 12-16 Match Racing regattas and do as much other sailing as possible. We will be heading home in December, all going well.
Obviously to stay in Europe for that length of time we are trying to obtain as much financial support as is possible. This has not been the easiest task but we are ready to take on the world and hopefully gain positive support from friends and family networks.
The Waka Racing team invites you to become an official supporter of the Team for the 2010 season. In May the team leaves for Asia and Europe undertaking an intense six month program. Another campaign on a very tight budget!
Our 2009 season was very successful and encouraging - we met our objective by finishing with a World number 25 ranking. We proved we can match the big names in match racing.
2010’s objective is simple and achievable – Waka Racing plan to finish with a word ranking in the top 12.
