International travel experience for Open Fleet Sailors? Tick. Fun cultural exchange? Tick. International competition? Tick. Opportunity of a lifetime? Definitely!
If you’re looking for a fantastic opportunity for your young sailor then the 2023 Japanese Friendship Regatta is a great goal.
The Japanese Friendship Regatta invitation is now in its 21st year and forms a unique offering to our NZIODA members. It’s a wonderful occasion and two lucky NZIODA Optimist open fleet sailors who are aged 13 years old and not already in a travelling team/development are invited to participate in the Regatta in Japan in August 2023.
