Strong New Zealand Team for International event in Wellington

A strong New Zealand Paper Tiger Team heads for Wellington this Easter weekend for the 2013 Swire Shipping International Paper Tiger Catamaran Championships.

The venue is Muritai Yacht Club, on the eastern shores of Wellington Harbour. Muritai is familiar to many Paper Tiger sailors from both Australia and New Zealand, and has a strong history of running national championships, however this will be the first time the class has hosted an International event this location.

The club is nestled on the Eastern shores of Wellington Harbour with Eastbourne and Days Bay being location landmarks which the general public will be familiar with.

Another record fleet, 50 of the best Paper Tiger Skippers from Australia and New Zealand will be fighting to win the ultimate prize in the class. The fleet will comprise the national teams and invited skippers, based on firm criteria of performance in national and state championships in both countries.

The prospect of selection for their national teams always provides a bit of extra 'juice' for Australian and New Zealand skippers competing for a 'top ten' placing and national team selection at their respective national championships

The Australia vs New Zealand teams challenge is regarded as an important reason for the success of the Paper Tiger class over its four decade history.

The New Zealand Team are looking to reclaim the International Teams Trophy that they lost by the narrowest of margins in Melbourne last year. However a strong performance will be required from every member of the Kiwi Team if they are to be successful.

Dave Shaw from Nelson, New Zealand will be looking to defend his Individual title which he claimed in Melbourne, however he will not have things all his own way with strong competition from Australia's current National Champion Bruce Rose.

Other Australian's that are expected to be a force include past champions Bryan Anderson (two titles) & mark Wiggins. Other New Zealanders expected to be in 'the mix' at the front of the fleet include Scott Pedersen (Napier), Peter Robins (Wellington), Scott Barker (Wellington) and Mike Hood (Wellington).

Results can be followed on the Muritai Yacht Club's website, with updates expected each day following racing.
