NZIODA are pleased to be able to build on the success of last year’s South Island series with the 2023 / 24 Oborn’s Nautical South Island Series. Thanks to Oborn’s Nautical for their generous support with our new trophies for first male and female in both the Open and Green Fleets.
The 2023/24 Series will once again include three events and the winners will be the lowest-scoring male and female sailors once results are collated from all three events. There will be separate Open and Green Fleet divisions.
The events are spread around three locations in the South Island who have active Optimist fleets and will include :
- The South Island Optimist Championship which is being held as part of the Whakatu Regatta by the Nelson Sailing Club on 13 – 14 January 2024.
- The South Island Age Group Regatta (SIAG) at Charteris Bay Yacht Club on 20 – 21 January 2024.
- The Inter-Islander Regatta (also a Ranking Regatta) at Queen Charlotte Yacht Club from 23 – 25 February 2024.
Sailors will need to be current NZIODA members for their results to be counted towards the Traveller Series.
