Oceanbridge Sail Auckland has announced a package of prizes worth over $10,000 for the 2014 regatta that will see the top performers in selected youth classes and two lucky volunteers well rewarded.

The substantial prize pool for youth sailors has been made possible thanks to the contributions of a group of generous individuals interested in seeing the regatta continue to grow and attract young sailors for world class competition here in New Zealand.

The prizes on offer include...

*see note below
• Top placed youth crew in the 29er class will receive $2000 towards air travel expenses to a pinnacle international regatta*

• Top placed boy’s youth crew in the 420 class will receive $2000 towards air travel expenses to a pinnacle international regatta*

• Top placed girl’s youth crew in the 420 class will receive $2000 towards air travel expenses to a pinnacle international regatta*

• Top placed youth boy in the RS:X 8.5 class will receive $1000 towards air travel expenses to a pinnacle international regatta*

• Top placed youth girl in the RS:X 8.5 class will receive $1000 towards air travel expenses to a pinnacle international regatta*

• Top placed youth boy in the Laser Radial class will receive $1000 towards air travel expenses to a pinnacle international regatta*

• Top placed youth girl in the Laser Radial class will receive $1000 towards air travel expenses to a pinnacle international regatta*

• In addition, two spot prizes of $500 each will go to two lucky 2014 Oceanbridge Sail Auckland volunteers.

Simon Manning, Oceanbridge Sail Auckland Regatta Director says; 'A key part of what Oceanbridge Sail Auckland is all about is bringing New Zealand’s young sailing talent through and giving them the opportunity to compete in a top quality regatta here in New Zealand. Not only do they get the chance to observe and rub shoulders with the NZL Sailing Team’s Olympic heroes and world champions, but the 2014 prize package gives the youth sailors an extra incentive to sail to their potential.'

'And without our sponsors, supporters and our huge team of volunteers who put in long hours and take pride in their work the regatta simply wouldn’t be possible. It’s great to know that two of our hard working volunteer team will get a nice surprise at the end of the regatta.'

Sailors intending to sail at 2014 Oceanbridge Sail Auckland should enter on line now to give the organising team the best opportunity to plan some of the important details like courses, catering and resource allocation.

*Pinnacle international regatta must be agreed with Yachting New Zealand’s Talent Development Manager
