Hyundai New Zealand have come on board as a principal sponsor of the 2019 49er, 49erFX and Nacra 17 World Championships. The event continues to go from strength to strength and with Hyundai New Zealand involved it’s set to be enhanced.

This year’s 49er, 49erFX and Nacra 17 World Championships is to be held at the Hyundai Marine Sports Centre at the Royal Akarana Yacht Club in Auckland, New Zealand, the first time a world class event has been held at this venue.

As many as 400 sailors from around the world are expected to compete at the regatta from November 29-December 8, with a large number expected to start training in Auckland as early as October.

World Championships Event Director, Peter Dawson says, “It is with great excitement that we welcome Hyundai New Zealand to our family of sponsors. Hyundai New Zealand are a natural fit with the Hyundai Marine Sports Centre at the Royal Akarana Yacht Club.”

Dawson adds, “The event is really coming together now and we can’t wait to have some of the world’s best sailors here towards the end of the year. It’s great to have a brand like Hyundai associated with the event, we feel the partnership elevates the quality of the event, which was already at a high standard. With 40 percent of Olympic qualification spots up for grabs, it promises to be a terrific event. “

Hyundai New Zealand General Manager, Andy Sinclair says, “We’re excited to be involved with the first world class event held at the Hyundai Marine Sports Centre. The 49er, 49erFX and Nacra 17 World Championships is set to be a spectacular event which aligns well with our brand attributes, in particular the pursuit of excellence and sustainability.” Sinclair adds “The Hyundai brand has grown rapidly into a global automotive powerhouse, and last year was in the top 40 Best Global Brands for the fourth year running. This said, it’s easy to forget Hyundai New Zealand is a local business. We are 100% Kiwi owned and each and every dealership is 100% Kiwi operated. We are committed to supporting the things Kiwis love, such as the outdoors and water sports. As a brand we’ve been involved in sailing for many years, from Spirit of Adventure Trust’s youth sailing programme to mentoring talented young sailors through our Pinnacle Programme.”

Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city, is famous for its stunning harbours and sailing culture. It is, without a doubt, a world-class racing and regatta destination.

The downtown competition venue offers quick and easy access to a vibrant city with a celebrated culinary scene, fantastic shopping, and dynamic arts and culture. As well as big city sophistication, Auckland also offers an incredible natural setting; beautiful beaches, volcanic cones, island getaways and expansive parks are never too far away.

Home to sailing champions and the highly anticipated 2021 Americas Cup, Aucklanders and New Zealander’s alike are proud of their sailing heritage. Here, the Championship will enjoy huge support from the public.
