How did you discover New Zealand’s 26 ETF, which you imagined on the other side of the world from the home of Frenchman Jean-Pierre Deck?
Thanks to Jason Saunders, Says , A New Zealand sailor takes part in the SailGP with the Swiss crew. I immediately commented with this new support:
I like. And I really wanted to share more (in the project). The ETF 26 is ideal for learning to fly a seaplane, according to him:
It is a good way to control this type of boat. It’s way too fun.
“I really want to go back to Spy next year”
The way to navigate the ETF 26 and F50 is exactly the same. The number of ships in both circles is also the same. It is really a good browsing experience.

The Spi Ouest-France Experience, which kicks off in ETF season 26, is very popular with Lev Mackay:
I love the atmosphere here, it’s great to see so many people enjoying sailing in France. I have never experienced anything like it. I can’t wait to go back next year.
The 100% New Zealand, all-female crew, completed by Joe Allitt, Molly Mick, Alex Maloney and Erica Dawson, launched the vessel in France early last week. The sailors plan to compete in the other four stages of the ETF 26 circuit, in France (La Trinité-sur-Mer, Carnac, Quiberon and La Rochelle) and in Italy (Lake Garda).
