A little gift from us to you …

We’re absolutely thrilled to announce the release of some amazing FREE resources for young sailors, parents and caregivers!
NZIODA, in conjunction with Santa’s little helpers, have been working incredibly hard behind the scenes! The resources are a ‘thank you’ to you, our fabulous members, and also, well, just because it’s Christmas!
We launched our LTR and Green Fleet Handbook – It All Starts Here:  A Guide for New Optimist Parents  earlier this season, with resource guides on

and if you enjoyed those, we know you’ll love what we have lined up for you next. Our Guide for NZIODA Development and Representatives Teams 

So what have we got for you?

It really is everything you’ll need for the year ahead and beyond.  Any enquiries, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Let’s get ready to Opti!

Best wishes from the NZ International Optimist Dinghy Association
PS – Coming soon “Welcome to White/Open Fleet Handbook”
