Fosters Supports Logan Dunning Beck

Fosters is proud to help support the racing campaigns of Logan Dunning Beck.

Some of the biggest identities in New Zealand sailing have their names etched on the Tanner Cup, including Sir Russell Coutts, Chris Dickson and Jo Aleh.

Logan Dunning Beck also won the youth trophy and has aspirations of joining the who’s who of Kiwi yachting.

The 23-year-old is seemingly on his way. On top of his Tanner Cup success in 2008, he also won two Optimist national titles as a youngster as well as a Starling nationals.

More recently he’s campaigned in a 49er, winning World Cup titles in both 2015 (Melbourne) and 2016 (Weymouth), and recently skippered the NZL Sailing Team who finished second at the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup in Bermuda.

The Kiwi team convincingly won all three races on the second day and thought they had defended the title which the NZL Sailing Team won in 2013, only two see the British overtake several teams who tangled at the final mark, to win overall.

Dunning Beck is now back training in the 49er with crewmate Oscar Gunn and hopes to represent New Zealand at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, he also has designs on racing in the America’s Cup.

“I think both of them go well together,” he says. “At certain times, you would have to focus on one or the other but it’s all sailing. Both of them are right at the top of the sport, pushing the boundaries. They go hand-in-hand.”

Fosters wishes Logan success in his future endeavours and we will continue to help ensure is equipped with the right gear to win.
