Sailing Celebration: Olympic Heroes and Legends at RNZYS Westhaven
Tue, 13 Nov 2012
It’s been a big year for New Zealand sailing and all sailing enthusiasts to join the fun on Friday 23rd November at Yachting NZ's Celebrate Sailing afternoon.
Get up close and personal with your Olympic sailing hero. Collect a very cool free 2012 medallists’ poster, grab some autographs and maybe even a photo alongside New Zealand's Olympic sailing medallists Jo Aleh, Polly Powrie, Peter Burling and Blair Tuke who will all be there.
There is no need to register, just show up, but don’t forget your camera and if you have ‘special something’ you want your sailing hero to sign bring it along.
Speed Machines: A fleet of small boats and boards including some of the fastest sailing craft around will be in action just off the wall for onshore spectators.
Plus the RNZYS Havana Club Rum Race fleet will be on the water providing the keelboat spectacle.
When and Where: Friday 23rd November, starting 4:30pm Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron (at the eastern entrance steps) Westhaven Marina, Auckland
2012 Yachting Excellence Awards: The annual gala dinner celebrating the year’s yachting successes and recognising the behind the scenes workers is on from 6:30pm in the main hall of the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron. At the end of the night the 2012 Singapore Airlines Sailor of the Year will be named. Tickets and information available at www.yachtingnz.org.nz
