NZ Sailing started in 2005 when Mike Pasco was inspired to try and get more children out on the water and sailing. 

He could see the benefits for children (and adults) from getting out there into nature rather than sitting in front of a screen of some description.  The Mahurangi and Kerikeri College Sailing Teams were a great example of this to Mike and so when Yachting NZ stopped funding Stephanie Hazzard and her Koru Match team before the 2012 Olympics, it was pleasing that NZ Sailing, with the support of our customers, was able to help them was able to help Koru Match reach their goal of going to the Olympics.

Over the year's we have now been able to support a wide range of water and wind sports.  From Waka ama clubs, Surf Life Saving NZ and many Surf Life Savings clubs, Land yacht clubs and sailors, Kayak and fishing clubs, Jet Ski and Stand Up Paddle boarders to Surfers.  One of the most pleasing results of our sponsorships was seeing two teenagers Josh Junior & Andy Maloney grow into great ambassadors of sailing and watch them bring the America's Cup home to NZ in 2017.

Mike started teaching children how to sail at the Manly Sailing Club and continually hit the problem that after the 6 week Yachting NZ course the children and parents were keen to continue Sailing but they couldn't afford it.  Mike wondered why everything else in the world seemed to have got cheaper but "Sailing" and "Watersports" gear was so expensive?  Mike was on a sabbatical so he decided to investigate if he could find out if Sailing and Watersport gear users were being "ripped off"?  From that investigation, he understood that the market was getting smaller and smaller and businesses were increasing their profit margins to make up for lost sales.  It seemed like visious circle with higher prices leading to less sales, so requiring even higher prices and development of monopolies as fewer and fewer businesses were left selling Sailing and Watersports gear

Mike thought that by using a different business model of lower profit margins and higher turnover he could encourage more people onto the water and let more people enjoy the benefits and blessings of New Zealand's waterways and coastline.  Mike contacted brands who shared his passion and philosophy and used his extensive business knowledge to work on keeping the costs of running the business very low and passing these benefits onto NZ Sailing's customers.  NZ Sailing started with www.nzsailing.com and www.watersports.net.nz online stores and now has grown to represent many brands with wholesale and retail in the Asia Pacific region and exports all around the world.  NZ Sailing now has a 600 square metre Warehouse and Factory Shop and Windsurfing & Stand Up Paddle Board School.

 

We are pleased to partner with the Russell Coutts Sailing Foundation & Manly Sailing Club who share our goals to get more people sailing.
