AWSS… Let’s go sailing!!!

We’ve had a fantastic turnout over the last three events.

The fourth regatta in the six-stage Auckland Winter Sprint Series (AWSS) takes place at Wakatere on Saturday 14th August.

The AWSS is a six series regatta hosted around different Auckland sailing clubs:

Pt Chev 19th June
KYC 3rd July – OWNZ Boats available
MBSC 31st July
WBC 14th August
KYC 28th August  – OWNZ Boats available

The last race in the series will be incorporated into the MBSC Icebreaker to be held Saturday 18th Sept 2021.

So, dust off those winter blues and get involved in one of Auckland’s most iconic winter sailing events! It’s fun and competitive and there’s no better or safer way for your young sailors to test themselves in winter conditions.

The AWSS is open to all boats of Optimist (Green and Open fleet) and entry is fee is $25 and payable at the respective club on the day. This also includes coaching by NZIODA Coaches.

Please be aware that only competitors who have paid the entry fee and are members of NZIODA will be eligible for inclusion.
