Development Teams

This started as a new initiative by NZIODA in approximately 2015.  Since then the GDT has gone from strength to strength.  Now in its 7th year the aim of this team is to provide the top New Zealand female Optimist sailors a chance to race and make friends with other female sailors around New Zealand and further afield.  The team has proven to be one of NZIODA’s success stories allowing female sailors to both gain in skills and form lasting relationships among sailors. There is a high percentage of Girls who have participated in the GDT and then gone on to represent NZ at IODA events.

Currently the team now travels annually to Noumea for the Noumean Nationals in October. The team bases itself out of Casa del Sole.

Indicative cost for travel is around $5,000.00 to $6,000.

The team manager and coaches put together a programme of activities from the end of Nationals through to the team departing.
