Registrations are now open for the annual NZIODA North Island Opti Clinic which runs from January 10-13, 2023.
It’s that time of year again, so don’t miss out. Register today to secure your place.
This year we return to a residential clinic at the beautiful Willow Park Christian Camp at Eastern Beach in Auckland. This is the place to be this January as young sailors come together to make friends, have fun, and take part in some top-class Opti action. This year’s clinic is being run by NZIODA in association with the Royal Akarana Yacht Club.
The cost is $600 per sailor and an invoice will be sent out on registration. This camp is once again being subsidised by the Optimist Worlds New Zealand Trust (OWNZ) and we thank them for their continuing support.
The closing date for registrations is Friday, November 18, 2022. Any entries received after this date will be at the discretion of NZIODA and will incur a LATE PENALTY FEE OF 30% of the registration costs. Unfortunately, we will not be able to provide our complementary clinic T-shirts for those who register after this date. We have a maximum of 70 places available to NZIODA members, so it pays to get in quick.
All shore-based activities, mealtimes and night supervision will be taken care of by an appointed shore manager and parent volunteers. You can either offer to be part of the action as parent help or drop your young sailor off and pick them up four days later. Whatever works best for your family.
So join us for some summer fun. The sailors will improve their skills during four days of focused training and activities, under the guidance of our head coach Sam Mackay and his awesome team of NZIODA coaches.

We can’t wait to see you there!
