About Team Maverick

Doublehanded racing is one of the fastest growing disciplines in offshore sailing, often a strong separate class in regattas and frequently on the podium in mixed crewed/shorthanded offshore races. 

During the last five years an international group of shorthanded sailors comprising ‘Team Maverick’ have established a winning record on the water as well as an established following off the water and through social media. The team is enjoying a successful second season on the J-120 'Maverick'.
