Notes specific for Pt Chev

There is limited room by the water so anyone wanting to launch RIBs should be prepared to get there early or arrive to Pt Chev by water from their club or Westhaven Marina.  

Please note that Pt Chev is a cash only club so bring your entry fee of $25 with you.  As always any parents wishing to assist will be greatly appreciated.  For further clarification on any of these matters contact Jono Gravit on 0274 754 169

Looking forward to seeing you!

Best wishes from the NZ International Optimist Dinghy Association
