Isaac and William recently returned from the World Championship in The Haugue, where they won the (final) medal race, leaving them 4th overall. Although finishing just outside the medals, their top-ten placing guaranteed New Zealand a spot in the 49er class at the Games.
This follows a successful season on the European circuit, including representing New Zealand at the Olympic Test Event in July, where they have consistently been one of the top performing boats.
Currently back training in New Zealand, their focus now turns to the European Championship in Portugal in November. This will be one of two qualifying regattas to try to earn selection as the New Zealand 49er representatives at Paris.
Isaac and William are part of Yachting New Zealand’s High Performance Programme. They have each won World championships in different classes and were to lead one of New Zealand’s 2021 Youth America’s Cup teams until Covid intervened.
Hesketh Henry is proud to be associated with their campaign and looks forward to supporting their future accomplishments.
