January 22 -23 - 24, 2014
And the entries are still coming in – We should reach seventy boats.
It’s almost time to race while enjoying the beautiful Bay of Island’s hospitality. And we’re ‘ready to rock’ said the band leader…..
This year for the first time – our Judges will be out on the water conducting ‘on the water judging’. Watch out for them….
Bow Stickers: These will be issued – this year we’ve got the ‘stickability’ formula right.
Good news for those racing under IRC – we are allowing one more spinnaker over and above your IRC certificate allowance, see Amendment No. 7 to the Notice of Race.
When you receive your Sailing Instruction booklet at registration please do read it through thoroughly. Everything is there. Any questions – go to the Carters Race Hut.
Opua Store will take pre-orders for lunches. Greg and his team can cater for any request, you can contact him via email firstname.lastname@example.org - They look forward to keeping the crews tummies well satisfied! Lunch Order Form
Please feel free to post all your photos on any social media and tag them with #BOISW - any stories and photos can also be posted on our Facebook Page and/or txt them to 021 44 55 29 (Manuela) - and last but not least, www.livesaildie.com will report live from on the water during this year's regatta - we are going places ;-)
See you all on the 21st, registration starts at 1600 hrs in the North Sails marquee.
