Waka Racing

Sailing has been in Phil Robertson’s blood since the age of 10 when he started racing competitively. Racing in dinghy classes for several years satisfied his appetite for sailing and competition however Robertson wanted to develop himself as a team sailor which he did at the age of 16 when he joined the prestigious Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron Youth training Programme.

Phil now fronts WAKA Racing, a tight team of top young sailors who made their debut in 2011 as Tour Card Holders on the Alpari World Match racing Tour. It proved to be a baptism of fire for his team, eventually finishing in eighth place overall however the team learnt a lot from the experience and in 2012 WAKA Racing delivered a podium finish after a stunning performance at the final event to leapfrog up the standings from 7th to 3rd at the final event of the year, the Monsoon Cup. Robertson and his crew achieved their second consecutive podium place in the ISAF Match Racing World Championship in 2013.  They have started the New Year being crowned New Zealand Open Keel Boat Champions which puts them on a confident footing for achieving their ultimate goal of winning the World Championship in 2014.
