The 20th edition of the Sir Peter Blake Regatta, the largest junior and youth regatta in the Southern Hemisphere, will be supported by Zhik as it kicks off this weekend at Auckland’s Torbay Sailing Club.

Zhik has committed to a three-year program as the Official Clothing Partner for the Sir Peter Blake Regatta, with a commitment to developing products specifically for younger sailors.

This national two day regatta which is open to all main youth centreboard classes aims to inspire young sailors across New Zealand and embrace Sir Peter’s values, including the environment, leadership and fair play.

“We are delighted to be supporting the Sir Peter Blake Regatta which is an amazing legacy for young people and sailing”, comments Johnny Rodgers, Zhik’s global sponsorship manager. “Zhik has always had strong links with New Zealand sailors, from Olympics to Sail GP and more recently the Live Ocean Racing initiative. It’s a privilege for Zhik to be able to support younger sailors on their pathway to experience large regattas such as this one.

Former winners of the Sir Peter Blake Memorial Trophy include Peter Burling, Sam Meech and Jo Aleh, all of whom have been supported by Zhik over their sailing careers.
