Who Is Waka Racing?
This is a tight team of top young sailors. Their singular ambition is to be New Zealand’s next top sailors and to consistently win on the international stage.
The word “Waka” originates from the Maori (the indigenous people and language of New Zealand) word that means canoe or boat. The Maori people have amazing but intimidating war canoes with elaborate and intricate carvings at the prow and stern. These magnificent canoes have up to 100 warriors on the paddles. The logo of Waka Racing reflects the style of the stern posts seen on these canoes.
Hence, the team felt the name was appropriate as Match Racing is between two boats.
