Huge congratulations to our lucky sailor who was drawn randomly by our NZIODA Committee to meet with our incredible Head Coach Sam Mackay!
Harry Stewart-Lowe from Worser Bay Boating Club will have a 1:1 Zoom one hour session with Sam. It’s a great opportunity to tap into Sam’s expertise and get some wonderful prep before the summer season.
Sam has been coaching since 2009. He is Youth Coordinator at Yachting New Zealand, and previously spent four years as the Victorian International Optimist Dinghy Association Head Coach, playing a major role in developing the Victorian fleet. He was a coach with the Australian Optimist Team for three years.
Our lucky winner is certainly going to pick up plenty of gold from their Zoom chat!

A massive ‘well done’ once again!
NZIODA Committee
