Huge congratulations to our lucky sailors who were drawn by our NZIODA Development Committee to meet with our incredible Head Coach Sam Mackay!
Tristan Jayasuriya (MBSC), Greta Hutton (MBSC), Hamish Brown (WBC) and Mark Mains (Glendowie BC) will have a combined one hour Zoom 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 winners are certainly going to pick up plenty of gold from their Zoom chat!
A massive ‘well done’ once again!
