2012 Interislander Optimist Challenge

The 2012 Interislander Optimist Challenge combined with the two day South Island Optimist Champs was the biggest single fleet regatta outside of the Optimist Nationals held in the South Island.

91 entries in the Open fleet and 33 in the Green fleet, three days of great racing on the sparkling waters of Queen Charlotte Sound. Breeze of up to 18 knots on the first day, up to 15 knots on the 2nd and the last day was one for the light wind specialists, 5-7 knots. Most sailors agreed that there was a good balance of conditions for everyone.
