Waka Racing is proud to announce a new sponsor ahead of the upcoming World Match Race Tour. We welcome and thank KZ Race Furlers for coming onboard to support our team ahead of what is going to be a big year for us.

KZ Race Furlers and Waka Racing share a lot in common with both being New Zealand owned with a global focus. KZ Race Furlers come with a world-class reputation. In a contest where eliminating breakdowns and maximising usability is the key to success, KZ Race Furlers have outlasted and outperformed the competition time and again. These are all mantras that Waka Racing is striving for themselves on the professional sailing circuit.

By supporting Waka Racing KZ Race Furlers hope to raise their profile in the sailing community and to continue delivering their quality products to yachts around the world. Whether it is superyacht racing, IRC maxis, America’s Cup yachts, Volvo 70s, TP52s, IMOCA60s or big racing multihulls.

Rick Hackett, marketing director, said “Our sponsorship of the Waka Racing Team helps KZ strengthen its relationship with New Zealand’s developing talent. We also see an opportunity to increase the visibility of the KZ brand supporting our product base globally. We were impressed by the teams dedication and level of professionalism displayed during our discussions. We share common values, and that is important”.

Skipper of Waka Racing, Phil Robertson said “It is an honour to be able to represent KZ Race Furlers on the sailing circuit. The company has blown me away as to what they can produce, and how fast they can manufacture. The company’s morals and ethics mirror what Waka Racing is about and striving to be.”
