Note there is no South Island teams travel discount this time. Entries are again via the online form, with some information being essential for an Entry to be submitted. Also request that YNZ/club membership details be sent at one time, either by attachment with the entry form or via 1 separate email.
Organisers of the regionals, please remember to forward names of sailors from teams not attending Nationals. A Junior membership fee of $1 for each of these sailors is also required, as per our Constitution. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries, or if you would like to use online entry forms for your regattas.
Remember the annual Umpires’ course at Sandspit, prior to Nationals.
Several very successful training regattas and coaching were held around the country at Whangarei, Taupo and Nelson earlier in October. These were a great start to the season for the sailors who attended – well done to the organisers.
The Kerikeri Training Regatta is scheduled for mid-December, with the NOR due out shortly.
Following on from the deals last year with the Youth Worlds there is another offer this year – if there is a further order for 3 boats (420s – used only in China for the Youth Worlds), they will be free of shipping costs. The price of each boat is euro 5.700. These boats are with Selden Z mast, but the new version of the Selden mast with a different aluminium which has not altered the stiffness but has increased the strength. Boats would leave China on the 16 December. Please contact Ross mob: 0274728332, email: email@example.com by the end of October.
Good luck to those sitting exams and keep up the trainings.
