This seasons race is attracting interest from a number of world class international Laser sailors who will be in Auckland for the Sail Auckland and will be a closely fought contest.
Prior to the start of the OKI 24 Hour Race is the OKI OPTI 6 Hour. All Opti sailors are welcome. Grab a mate and form a team. The OKI OPTI 6 Hour trophy has been won by some of New Zealands best up and coming young sailors and is becoming a highly coveted trophy.
If you would like to sail or have a business that would like to sponsor one of the boats we would love to hear from you.
The OKI 24 Hour Race is the major fund raising event for Murrays Bay Sailing Club and funds the coaching programmes that we run for our junior sailors. Put the dates in your diary and come along to Lake Pupuke and be part of this exciting event.
