About Us

Port Tack Racing is the commercial arm of the 49er and Nacra 17 Classes. All proceeds go to the supporting the aspiring Olympic sailors and class champions.

49er and Nacra 17 racing is highly athletic doubles sailing. The 49er is men's doubles, the 49erFX is women's doubles, and the Nacra 17 is mixed doubles.

Our sailors are spread across the globe, and our racing schedule varies year on year as we reach out to as many sailing fans as we can. Our commercial locations are in Europe (the Netherlands) the America's (Canada) and we are developing a network in Oceania too (New Zealand). Most of our products available worldwide and if you are worried about getting something don't hesitate to reach out to us.

The 49er entered the Olympics for the Sydney 2000 games, while both the 49erFX and Nacra 17 made their debuts for the Rio 2016 games. All three events continue through the 2024 games.

Our racing is a crucible for skill development. These champions go on to dominate pro sailing after their Olympic careers, and in some cases even during their Olympic careers. For the best racing, and the most fun, be sure to tune in.
