Oceanbridge Sail Auckland – 37 Days to go


With just 37 days to go until 2015 Oceanbridge Sail Auckland kicks off, now is the time to ensure that your entry is complete!

The Organising Committee and host club Royal Akarana Yacht Club are excited to welcome all fleets to the Okahu Bay location for the regatta.

This summer has so far been outstanding and we are hoping for the conditions to continue up until after the event!

New Zealand’s only ISAF 100 Point Olympic, Paralympic and invited class regatta is pleased to again offer a travel subsidy to help kiwi sailors from outside the Auckland Region take part in this world class event.

Rebates will be paid upon the sailor(s) completion of the Regatta. A youth sailor for this event is defined as a sailor that has not attained their 19th birthday prior to 31 December 2014. The Sail Auckland Organising Committee reserves the right to rule on any issues relating to this subsidy and that ruling will be final.
