Peter Burling MNZM (born 1 January 1991, New Zealand) is the 2017 America's Cup champion helmsman, Olympic gold (49er sailing, 2016) and silver (49er sailing, 2012) medallist [1][2] He won four consecutive 49er World Championships, two 420 class World Championships and the 2015 Moth World Championships.

Early life & education[edit]

Burling was born in 1991 in Tauranga. His education began at Welcome Bay School and Tauranga Intermediate School.

Burling started sailing at the age of six in the Welcome Bay estuary near his home in Tauranga, in an old wooden Optimist called Jellytip. At the age of eight, he joined Tauranga Yacht Club and started competing.[3][4]

He attended high school at Tauranga Boys' College, also attended at the time by cricketer Kane Williamson.[5][6]

He studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Auckland where he completed half of the 4 year degree.

Early career[edit]

Burling sailed in his first Optimist nationals at age 9. At the age of 11 in 2002, Burling finished 2nd in the New Zealand Optimist Nationals (under-16).[7] He competed in the 2002 Optimist World Championships in Texas at the age of 11.

In 2003 at the age of 12, Burling won the New Zealand Optimist Nationals and competed in the 2003 Optimist Worlds in the Canary Islands where he finished 40th[8]. He stopped sailing the optimist at age 12.

At age 13, he was 2nd in the New Zealand P class Nationals (under 17). He won the NZ Starling nationals (under 19) – (winning both the Fleet racing and Matchracing titles) twice – at age 14[9] and 15.[10]

At the age of fifteen Burling (with Carl Evans) won the 2006 420 Class Worlds in the Canary Islands – the youngest sailors ever to do so. They also won the under-16 and under-18 world championships.[11]

At 16 years old Burling successfully defended his 420 title to win the 420 Class Worlds sailed in Auckland. He also won the under-18 world championship. Burling finished 6th in the 2007 470 Europeans – his first international 470 regatta and had his best world ranking in the 470 of 5th in 2008.

Adult career[edit]

Americas Cup[edit]

Burling was the helmsman for Emirates Team New Zealand's 2017 America's Cup campaign, which was raced in Bermuda[12]. On 27 June 2017, he became the youngest winning helmsman in the history of the Americas Cup, when at age 26 he and his team won the 35th competition for the cup.[13][14]

Burling skippered the New Zealand Sailing Team entry to victory in the inaugural Red Bull Youth America's Cup in San Francisco in September 2013.[15][16]

Burling helmed for Team Korea's White Tiger Challenge, in the 2011–13 America's Cup World Series in San Francisco in 2012.[17]

Olympic classes[edit]

Burling with Blair Tuke were Olympic flag bearers for New Zealand at the 2016 Olympics.[18] They were just the 4th New Zealand flagbearers to win a gold medal at the same Olympics.[19]

At age 25, Burling was the youngest ever 49er Olympic gold medal skipper. He and Tuke won the 2016 Olympics with two races to spare[20] and by an overall 43 point margin[21] – winning by the most points of any sailing class in the Olympics in over 50 years.[22]

At the 2012 London Olympics, Burling (then aged 21) was the youngest 49er sailor. He won the silver medal as helm in the 49er class alongside Blair Tuke.[23]His silver medal was, jointly, New Zealand's 100th Olympic medal.[24]

Burling and Tuke are the first sailors to win four consecutive 49er class World Championships (2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016).[25] They won all 28 of the major regattas in the 49er between the London Olympics (2012) and the Rio Olympics (2016).[26] The only regatta they did not win in this time was when they finished 3rd in a short 2 day regatta prior to the Olympics. In all the major regattas (Olympics, Worlds, Europeans, World Cup) in 2015 and 2016 they led into the medal races by over 20 points – effectively winning the regattas before the medal race.

Burling finished 11th in the 470 class at the 2008 Olympics. At 17 years old (still at school), he was the youngest sailor ever to represent New Zealand at the Olympic Games.[27] Burling was the youngest sailing competitor at the 2008 Olympics[28] and the youngest member of the 2008 New Zealand Olympic team.[29]
