Christmas Message

It’s been a very hard year, but now let’s have some fun! We want to thank you all, the NZIODA family, the wider NZ sailing community, and all our friends around the world for the amazing support you’ve given us throughout the year. We couldn’t have done it without you! 

Now is the time to relax with loved ones and enjoy all the very special moments the festive season provides. Happy holidays to you all! Please stay safe, and we hope you find some time to get out on the water! 

And don’t forget the first event of 2021 will be with us before you can say ‘Jingle Bells.’ We’re looking forward to seeing many of you at the North Island Opti Clinic, 11th to15th January and at Auckland Championship at Murrays Bay from Saturday January 30th to Monday February 1st.

Best wishes from the NZ International Optimist Dinghy Association,
