AUDI HSS Sailing Center Elliott 6m, Fleet: 6 boats
Designer: Greg Elliott, 2000/2008
Builder: Elliott Marine
After 14 years of use the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron decided it was time to replace their very successful Youth Training Fleet of Elliott 5.9s. The boats were to be practically built, in a cost effective manner but to a high standard. The Elliott 6 performs well on all points of sail, accelerates quickly and is very easily manouvered. The Boat was selected as an Olympic Class for Womens Match Racing in 2008. The AUDI Match Race Team Finland with helmsman Silja Lehtinen, reprsenting both HSS and NJK, took a bronze medal at the London Olympics 2012. The Boats at AUDI HSS Sailing Center were used by the team and their sparring partners at HSS Match Race Centre between 2009 an 2012. The boats are in very active use at the AUDI HSS Sailing centre.
