1. Winter Opti Fun
WOF is Wakatere's own Opti coaching during winter. Gordon Sims & Juliette Richards from the Sunday Program are organising this, with some star parent coaches making guest appearances when possible. It's aimed at Green fleet and all Sunday morning groups.
Up to 30 Optis are turning up so don’t miss the fun. Be rigged and ready to sail at Wakatere at 2pm / $10 on the day. Watch our facebook page for any changes due to weather.
Remaining 4 dates: 6 August; 20 August; 3 September; 17 September.
2. Auckland Winter Sprint Series
AWSS is on throughout winter until mid-September. It moves around Auckland clubs with series points accruing. It's for Open AND Green fleets and ideal for our Sunday LTR group with some short sprint style racing. It’s a competitive environment and you should definitely give this a go in the Green fleet if you have some understanding of the rules of racing.
