From 7am Monday 25th April - 7:30pm Sunday 8th May there will be an Online Auction for our talented young Opti sailors representing New Zealand at overseas regattas in the coming months.
They have worked hard to gain selection and need our support with costs associated with training and travelling to their respective championships. They are committed, they are learning, they are growing as individuals and as a team, and they are having fun.
From the NZ squad of 26:
- 5 will travel to Portugal for the World Optimist Championship
- 5 will travel to Italy for the European Championship
- 6 will travel to Antigua for the North American Championship
- 10 will travel to Sri Lanka for the Asian Oceania Championship
There are an awesome number of cool items up for auction - vouchers, accommodation, sporting goods, dinning and many more. Check it out at:
