There are a few spaces left for the NZTSA Christmas Regatta, proudly sponsored by ABACO on Jervois, hosted by Royal Akarana Yacht Club.

This is a development regatta with multiple experienced coaches around, to give sailors a great combination of both racing and coaching, to maximise everyone’s experience.

Derry Godbert, Ross Sutherland, Jamie Catchpole & Lily Grimshaw will all be coaching for the regatta, get in touch quickly to secure your spots for the three days.

The cost of entry for the regatta is $70/day for those chartering boats, or $35/day if you bring your own 420s to the regatta.

We’ve got sailors from the following Colleges:

  • Mount Aspiring College

  • Waiheke High School
  • Whangarei Boys (comb. with Mahurangi College)
  • Whangarei Girls (comb. with Mahurangi College)

Event Information:

Briefing on Thursday 17th will be around 9:30 outside the Auckland Sailing Club building at RAYC.
The intention is to get the first race away by 10:00 every day, aiming to get launched straight after the briefing.
Coaching tips and ideas will be combined with briefing time, along with de-briefs after sailing and on-water coaching.
