OWNZ Boats

OWNZ Trust has provided NZIODA with 6 Optimists known as “OWNZ Boats” which are located at Kohimarama Yacht Club in Auckland. OWNZ Boats are used at NZIODA Ranking Regattas, but not in Nationals. The boats were new in May 2019. 

These boats have been donated to NZIODA from the OWNZ Trust to encourage participation at Regattas and events within Auckland for those living “out of town”.  This is not a source of revenue for NZIODA and all monies are put back towards the upkeep of the Optimists, insurance and the WOF for the stacker trailer. 

If you are using an OWNZ Boat for any NZIODA Ranking Regattas the measurement certificates for the optimist, spars and foils have already been signed off by the Chief Measurer.

OWNZ Trust (Optimist Worlds New Zealand)

In 2010 a group of five (5) Optimist parents passionate about the class and its sailors got together, bid for, won and organised the 2011 Optimist  Worlds in Napier.

The regatta was a great success, both as an international event and financially. When the event was wrapped up they created a trust and put the residual funds from this event into it for the future benefit of the class. Though their children have now long moved out of Optimists they are still very proactive in supporting the class through their trust.

As a legacy, NZIODA’s charter boats are funded by this trust to assist sailors’ participation in the class. On application, boats are available for overseas sailors wishing to participate in NZIODA ranking regattas and to facilitate the ability of out-of-town sailors travelling long distances to attend national regattas and training camps with minimal cost.

You can book these boats for:

  • Winter Champs, Auckland
  • Opti Team Cup, Auckland
  • Sir Peter Blake Regatta, Auckland
  • NZIODA North Island Opti Clinic, Eastern Beaches, Auckland
  • Auckland Championships
  • Junior Sail Auckland

Please note the OWNZ Boats are not available to use in Nationals.
