Nothing stopping people going on the water with the Coved 19 virus protection measures.

With a few regattas postponed or cancelled, now is a good time to get some serious training while the weather is still warm, and the days relatively long - a great opportunity to try out some new ideas and gear, without having to worry about being in sync for the next regatta.

For ILCA / Laser sailors The Water Shed has the new Radial Composite lower section, also Carbon top sections ,Booms and other lower sections all available.

Now is the opportunity to check in at The WaterShed to come in and get the latest tips and tricks on equipment and sailing styles.

Particularly if you're an Optimist or Starling sailor with the Nationals postponed.

Looks like some winter sailing this year with maybe a winter 2020 nationals or an early next season event. The Water Shed have some new tricks for making your boat easier and faster to sail.

We also have custom made SK99 vang strops with a Technora case that won’t wear in the cleats - these ropes have 25% less stretch than any other rope on the market .

The Water Shed has one of the best rope selections in NZ. Ask Dan Slater how you can improve your boats systems with less wear , less friction and less stretch.

The Water Shed has relocated from their former premises in Barry's Point Road to a new shop at 3C/89 Ellice Road, Wairau Valley.

They're open for business - go and have a chat with Dan Slater, the best yacht doctor in the business - internationally as well as New Zealand - and take the opportunity to be sharp and ready for the next time you race.
