You will have seen a previous email announcing the launch of 1975-2005 The First Thirty Years Of Optis in New Zealand – a brand new book by Mike Judd, in conjunction with NZIODA and Paul and Pat Pritchett.
We’re delighted to announce that it’s ready for you to download and that, as NZIODA members, you can get hold of your complimentary copy now! That’s right. Absolutely free.
After many months of hard work, meticulous research, and navigating the archives, NZIODA have come up with a truly special publication – one that captures not only New Zealand’s special relationship with optimist craft and racing (and vice versa), but also the special community that has been forged across our two islands for half a century.
To download your copy, all you have to do is head to the website HERE.
A huge thank you to Mik Judd, the NZIODA team and Paul and Pat Pritchett. It wouldn’t have been possible without your astonishing generosity, knowledge and dedication!
Best wishes from the New Zealand International Optimist Dinghy Association
