Another top Wakatere effort for many of our juniors at the 2016 Junior Sail Auckland & Optimist Pre-Nationals Regatta at Kohi YC 6th & 7th February. You deserve a rest after 2 big regattas almost back to back! Well done to all the sailors, coaches and parents. For our younger sailors this was a great chance to familiarise themselves with Kohi- the Opti Nationals venue at Easter 2016
The 2016 Opti Auckland Champs were held over Auckland Anniversary long weekend (30th Jan - 1st Feb) at Maraetai Sailing Club and Wakatere sailors and parents put in a big effort. In the final results, half the top 10 in the Opti Open were Wakatere club members and the Opti Green fleet had a strong show as well! For a NZIODA ranking regatta this is a great result.
Congratulations to all the competitors who were all well behaved and sailed to the best of their ability in very challenging conditions. Thanks to everyone who helped out taking RIBS, the club trailer and tent. A great Team Waka effort.
Taking the title in convincing style was Josh Schon with another podium place for Brayden Hamilton in 3rd overall. Even more trophies for NZIODA age groups.

Make a plan to build up to the 2016 NZL Optimist Nationals. The Nats are being held in Auckland so its a great opportunity to have Wakatere's biggest number of entries ever. Green fleet or Open fleet, give it your best shot and attend one of these regattas or clinics this summer -
