Hi team
This week we are on for Thursday 2 handed coaching.
We are all go for Friday learn to race group.
Saturday am, I’m going to spend some time at lake Manawai to try and convince some kids to come sailing in the ocean with us.

Saturday pm there is a match racing regatta at Opua yacht club in their club 420’s. I encourage fathers mothers and their children to join in on the fun and fly the flag for bay of islands yacht club. Registration is 330 racing from 4. There will be heats and sudden death until the finals.
Dinner and a band at the club afterwards.

Sunday am is learn to race group
Sunday pm I will run racing, we will be low on numbers with many of our starling sailors in Auckland with regattas. Please email or txt me if you are keen to race on Sunday so I can prepare. I might tow a boat out to the race course and join in on the racing action. Parents come and race, club boats are available so don’t be shy.

Also here is some information about youth class training good info and will help everyone to understand the next step. In competitive sailing after/at the end of your starling career..

Here is the performance pathway including ideal ages and weights

Less competitive less expensive opportunities also available!!!  Talk to me and we can set goals.
