This just in from Paul White down under at Weta Australia –
Australian Multihull sailing legend, Rod Waterhouse, to race a Weta Trimaran at the 2017 World Masters Games in Auckland. Winner of the 2016 Hobie 16 World Masters and winner of many Australian multihull championships, Rod Waterhouse, will compete in the Weta Trimaran class in the sailing regatta at the World Masters Games in Auckland, New Zealand in April next year. “I was excited to try the Weta after seeing videos online”, said Rod. “And after a test of a boat loaned from Weta Sydney I knew I had to do the event.” Auckland is the home of the New Zealand-designed Weta and over 1300 Wetas have been sold worldwide since it launched with a splash in 2009.
“We’re very pleased to see someone of Rod’s calibre racing the Weta and hope we can encourage more of his contemporaries to take part with the free shipping offer”, said Roger Kitchen, Director of Weta Marine. “The Australian Weta Team are sending a container of 10 boats for the regatta and if you order a new Weta before 1st March, it can be included in the container free of charge”.
The fun, fast, easy Weta 4.4 Trimaran is the high-tech boat everyone can sail and it has recently been selected for Paralympic sailing events by the World Sailing organisation. Expertly made for maximum enjoyment and minimum fuss, whether you’re sailing all out and solo, mixing it up with the family or teaching the kids to sail, the Weta is simple to sail, surprisingly quick, and an absolute ton of fun.

The World Masters Games is the largest multi-sport event in the world. In terms of athlete numbers, it is bigger in scale than even the Olympics. Auckland will host the event from 21 to 30 April 2017 during which time 25,000 participants will compete in 28 sports across 48 competition venues. The Games are regarded as the largest event New Zealand will host in at least the next decade.
