NZIODA maintains the ownership records of all Optimists in New Zealand. When you get a new boat you need to register the ownership or purchase a second hand boat you need to change the ownership with the class registrar.
As you progress in your Optimist sailing you will need your registration papers to enter some of the Championship regattas.
In order to register your new boat or change the ownership of your boat please contact the class registrar.
New registration costs $20 NZD
Change in Ownership costs $10 NZD
