Efficient catamaran with new Audi e-tron design at Kieler Woche Regatta

Audi e-tron Sailing Team
For Kieler Woche 2018 there will again be sporting highlights to marvel at. At the Olympic sailing competitions Johannes Polgar (Olympic participant 2008 in Beijing) and Carolina Werner (Olympic participant 2016 in Rio) will sail in the new Olympic discipline Nacra 17 with their new designed boat. The design of the Foiling Nacra 17 catamaran was created by Marc Lichte and Marco dos Santos from Audi Design.
  • Audi e-tron sailing team sets course for the Olympics
  • Environmentally friendly “Nacra 17 catamaran” with Audi e-tron design on the starting line

Audi will once again be there as premium partner at the Kieler Woche Regatta from 16 to 24 June 2018, with a focus this year on sustainability. The premium manufacturer is presenting its efficient catamaran in the Nacra 17 category with special Audi e-tron design at the world’s largest sailing regatta, thus underlining its dedication to electromobility. In the Nacra 17 class, both hulls of the boat are lifted clear of the water. This results in less drag and consequently less use of energy while achieving the same high speed. Johannes Polgar and Carolina Werner of the Audi e-tron sailing team will be there setting a course for the Olympics in their Nacra 17 catamaran.
