A quote to summarise your Bladerider

An extremely well thought out and constructed product.  Foiling is such an exciting way to sail that surely it´s the future of yachting!

Peter grew up in Devonport, Auckland, sailing at his local yacht club in Sabots, Starlings and Lasers earning several National Championships before later moving on to the Olympic 470 class and representing his country for the 1984 and 1988 Olympic Games. By 1992, he had a Match Racing World Championship to his name and in 1997 held the ILC40 World Championship title. Having met Brad Butterworth while competing in the Europe Dinghy Worlds in Copenhagen in his teens, the two converged again in 1992 in San Diego with Team New Zealand.

Peter is now a sailor for Alinghi, having now sailed in 5 America's Cup challenges.
