Match racing in short

Match racing is an intense and strategic form of sailing where two sailboats at a time go head to head in a race of approximately 15 minutes. The boats sail two laps, and the first to cross the finish line wins.

A collection of identical boats awaits at every new world tour destination, so the teams constantly need to adjust to new prerequisites. Boats can be anything from catamarans to ultra-modern foiling boats. 

"WINGS and Hexatronic have lots in common. We are both driven by the ambition to be at the forefront of our respective fields. The belief in the power of teamwork and a passion for technology unites us. We are proud to team up with this amazing crew of hard-working, strategic, and strong women. The way they dream big and break barriers truly inspires us."

Henrik Larsson Lyon, CEO Hexatronic Group

Boosting women's sailing

WINGS always strives to go first. They are actively working on expanding women's possibilities to compete worldwide. In 2024, women will finally be able to participate in America's Cup for the first time when the competition takes place in Barcelona.

To give back to the sport, the team is tutoring young girls in sailing and leadership within the project smallWINGS. During camps and meet-ups, they transfer knowledge and inspire the younger generation.

Clean oceans

WINGS cooperates with the Perfect World Foundation in the struggle for clean oceans. The crew highlights the problem through their channels and always brings garbage from the shores of their local marina.
