The Kiwi Generation

Phil Robertson, the reigning Match Racing and M32 World Champion, on why sailors from New Zealand are doing so well…

“It’s in the water we drink growing up! Nah, I honestly believe we have an advantage being so far away from everything. We are in our own little world down there and we have to give a lot up to compete at this level. Family and our time at home suffers so we are extra determined to put in a good performance. There is certainly no lack of talent coming out of New Zealand at the moment and it is a great generation to be a part of.”
