ETNZ Isolation Challenge

Like so many millions around the world, we are also about to go into lockdown and will be looking for simple ways to keep our kids entertained.

So we thought, why not share a few of our ‘special projects’ with everyone with a chance to win some Emirates Team New Zealand gear. Keep checking back over the coming weeks for a few updated ideas.

Challenge 1: Colour an AC75

Having detailed photos and videos of Te Aihe and Te Kahu is vital for the team. It helps them analyse the performance of the boats and where they can find improvements. We love the designs too, and think they really stand out.

This week, we’ve picked a few of our favourite pictures and stripped the colour out of them.

This challenge has ended, but you can still have a go. Click here for a link to the pictures you can print and colour in.

Congratulations to the winning entrant, whose artwork can be seen below.

Some of the standout entries in this challenge can be found here on Emirates Team NZ’s website..

Challenge 2: Build an AC75

This week Geoff Senior, the team Construction Manager has tasked you with designing your own AC75. He loves Lego, but if Lego isn’t your thing, feel free to build your AC75 out of whatever you have lying around. Just make sure you check with mum and dad before using the toilet paper to build the mainsail.

This challenge has also ended, but you can see some of the great entries here and the winner’s entry is here below.

Challenge 3: Tie a bowline You can’t go sailing without ropes and knots so this week our Head Rigger, Nick Burridge, wants to see your knot-tying skills.

Film yourself tying a bowline and post it in the comments on our Facebook page here and the fastest bowline by a “young sailor” will win a one on one video call with one of our sailors.
