Hosting Optimist Auckland Championship – Expressions of Interests

Expressions of interest are now being taken from Auckland Clubs with an active Optimist fleet to hold the Optimist Auckland Champs in 2025, 2026 and 2027. This regatta includes the annual Auckland Anniversary Regatta. Preference will be given to clubs who agree to host the North Island Optimist Clinic held at Willowpark Camp in Eastern Beach in the year preceding the Auckland Champs.
This event is scheduled to be held on Auckland Anniversary weekend at the end of January each year with three days of racing.  Three Optimist fleets are involved; an Open fleet (up to approximately 100 sailors); White Fleet (up to approximately 30 sailors, and Green Fleet (up to approximately 70 sailors).  Racing is held over 2 courses with the Open and White fleets sailing on the same course.  This event is often held in conjunction with the Starling Auckland Champs.  Contact NZIODA at for more details and guidelines on host requirements.
Once we have heard from all interested clubs the committee will discuss options and get back to you in early September.
Please discuss this with your club committee and then complete this form by 30 August if you are interested.
