We already have 5 of the top 15 ranked sailors registered and with one week until registration closes make sure you don’t leave it too late!

The clinic is an annual five-day course run by the NZ International Optimist Dinghy Association. Up to 70 spaces are available (for financial members of NZIODA), with selection based on recent results, performance, and commitment. We expect attendees to be competent fleet racers who have previously contested at least two good sized regattas, ideally the Winter Champs, North or South Island Optimist Champs or National Optimist Championships, Auckland Champs, Winter Champs, Sir Peter Blake Regatta etc.

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 a range of New Zealand and International coaches performing the coaching duties under the direction of an appointed Coaching Director.

The venue is the Willow Park Christian Camp, just 50 meters from Eastern Beach near Auckland. Shore based activities, meal times and night supervision is under the direction of an appointed “On-Shore Manager”.

The cost is $495.00 per sailor and this must be paid at the time of booking into the clinic. Any outstanding balance of costs is subsidised by NZIODA.

Close-off date for entries is December 8th 2019. Depending on numbers applied, we will aim to provide acceptance (or otherwise) by December 15th. Upon acceptance, you will be sent more information and the program for the clinic.
