It’s a Bay of Islands Sailing Week extravaganza in this month’s Tell Tales. And can you blame us? These three fantastic days of highly competitive racing (not to mention partying) have got to be the highlight of the BOI yacht racing calendar.
Plus, with OCC boats representing over one fifth (yup, over 20%!) of the boats taking part in this year’s regatta, well, it would be rude not to really, wouldn’t it?
And of course, with photographer Will Calver of oceanphotography.co.nz on the case, there’s no shortage of awesome shots of the boats taking part. A magazine editor’s dream! :-)
News & Reports are still in there too!
While BOISW takes centre stage in this issue, it just wouldn’t be Tell Tales without all the usual OCC News & Reports. So dive in to find out the latest OCC racing results, see what’s coming up in the social calendar, and more.
Full Members Hawaiian Beach Party
One of the highlights of the forthcoming social calendar will be the Hawaiian Beach Party on 16th February. This is a Full Members Only event, to thank those of you who support our club so well.
Tickets are on sale now for just $15, and include a ‘pig-on-a-spit’ meal and desserts, plus reduced-price drinks. Party starts at 3pm so we can make the most of our wonderful sunny deck (fingers crossed!), and there will be a prize for best-dressed, so dig out those grass skirts, coconuts and Hawaiian shirts. See you there!
