MEET THE TEAM: SAILORS, NICKNAME AND EMBLEMS

The Pacific Islanders – “Proudly Polynesian, fiercely Oceanian”

Since Tahitian Sailing Federation split from France’s in the 1980s, a handful of local sailors reached Sailing highest level including World Champion Billy Besson and SSL Team Tahiti Captain Teva Plichart, 2007 European Match-Racing champion and Areva’s wincher at the Louis-Vuitton Challengers

SSL Team Tahiti will be a reset of this fantastic project that mixed Tahitian pro with local young amateur sailors. Their objective is to surprise European best teams as perfect underdogs. Tahitians are never as good as when they get together to show the rest of the World their sailing skills.
