South Island Optimist Coaching Clinic

17th - 21st December

The clinic is a four-day course and will be the premier coaching clinic for Open Optimist Sailors in the South Island this summer.

Up to 30 spaces are available for financial members of NZIODA. Sailors must be able to independently rig, launch and retrieve their own fiberglass Opti and have some racing experience at Open or Green Fleet level at a recent major regatta (e.g. Picton Interislander, Canterbury Age Groups and/or Nationals).

The main aim of the clinic is to improve the skills of all participants during four days of intensive training and activities. We will have some top New Zealand coaches, performing the coaching duties.

The venue is the YMCA Wainui Park Camp on the western side of Akaroa Harbour on Banks Peninsula. N.B. It is located on the opposite side of the harbour from Akaroa Township.

Accommodation is in the lodge facility at the camp. All meals are supplied. The lodge includes a dining room, kitchen, bunk rooms, toilets, showers etc.
