On Tuesday, the New Zealand SailGP Team launched its brand new F50, Amokura, in Bermuda, ahead of the first event of the season this weekend. Live Ocean is the kiwi NZSailGP team's charity partner and carrying the supersized Live Ocean logo on the wing.

Peter Burling said: "Not only does the F50 look awesome but it also highlights our pride in representing Aotearoa and is a powerful way to take the important message of ocean restoration and protection to the world."

The team will be racing with purpose as part of the league's Race for the Future platform. It gives us the ability to take the message of ocean restoration and protection to the world stage. It's a huge opportunity for Live Ocean, Pete and Blair to bring together their passion for a healthy ocean with sailing. It's as authentic as it is purposeful.

Live Ocean chief executive Sally Paterson said: "This is a hugely proud moment for Live Ocean as charity partner for the team. To see Peter, Blair and the rest of the team take the ambition for a healthy ocean to the world stage but to anchor it so strongly in Aotearoa New Zealand is really, really special."

"We'll continue to amplify and accelerate world-class marine science, innovation and public education within Aotearoa New Zealand. Thanks to the generosity of our core supporters 100% of public donations continues to go directly to the projects we support."
