    Sailing NZ CEO stoked over Kiwi sailors efforts

    Sailing New Zealand CEO David Abercrombie's nothing short of stoked around the efforts from New Zealand's crop of sailors


    New Zealand's now qualified eight boats for next year's Olympic Games, the second most if you exclude hosts Japan, sitting two behind England.

    Abercrombie says given the strength of sailing around the world, it's a great achievement.



    Although eight boats are qualified, Sailing NZ are yet to determine how many boats they will take over to compete.
