NZIODA North Island Opti Clinic Registration Closing Soon

There’s still time to sign-up for the annual NZIODA North Island Clinic which is now being held at Wakatere due to on-going Covid restrictions making it impossible to camp together at the Eastern Beach venue.  The clinic still runs from 11-14 January 2022!

What a great way to start the New Year! It’s the place to be for young sailors this January, but you haven’t got long! The closing date is Friday 3rd December 2021, and we have limited places available.

World-class coaching, competitive racing, and fun activities will be the order of the day. Wakatere Boating club will be the venue for the 2022 Auckland champs and the 2023 Optimist Nationals so this is a great opportunity to get to know the venue and get some practice in.

With the end of the school year and Christmas fast approaching, your calendar is busying up, and we don’t want you to miss out. Registration takes just a few minutes.

You will need to sign-up and pay after you register. You’ll receive an acceptance/notification email after that, and we’ll also send you full clinic details after registrations close.

The clinic is run by NZIODA in association with Wakatere Boating Club. 

When: 11-14 January 2021
Where: Wakatere Sailing Club, Auckland
Price: $300.00 per sailor  

Register online here.

Please note that this clinic is now non-residential and all sailors over the age of 12 including parents/caregivers need to be vaccinated.

Best wishes from the NZ International Optimist Dinghy Association
