Yacht plans

The Elliott 6 (E6), a 6-metre racing yacht, seen here in plan form, was chosen for the women’s keelboat match racing event in the 2012 Olympics in London. Sailed by a three-woman crew, it was the first New Zealand boat to be chosen for an Olympic event. Designed by Aucklander Greg Elliot, the E6 was built in carbon fibre in China.
