The Orakei Yacht Club is
Pleased to announce the Orakei
Basin is again OPEN with hugely
improved access road and parking.
The well known sailing along the
Car Park is again in operation.
We are ALSO pleased to Announce
the 2016 ELECTRON WORLDS
will be HELD on 21st May.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
The Regatta will be a one Day event, of Fleet Racing.
Prizes will be for both Line and Handicap, the handicap using the EHCIS Electron Handicaping System. So everyone has a chance to win. Many Spot prizes will be presented at the prize giving.
The OOD will attempt to get as many Round Robins in as possible in the Day.
Sunday is reserved in case of adverse weather or conditions.
If not required, there will be some fun racing on Sunday from 10 am to 12 for those interested . . . Format yet to be determined.
The Prize Giving will be held at a local Restaurant, the "Black Sugar".
We have had some terrific Spot Prizes donated to date, including 4 nights accommodation for 2 in Rarotonga, Electron Sails, Sail Carrier, and Cradle. And there are more.
The Trophys are still under construction, however, have a place in NZ History, as they have been made from a piece of 55 Thousand Year Old Swamp Kauri. Each are a little piece of New Zealand's history.
These are to take home.
The Main Trophy, is a recreation of the First Trophy from when the OYC hosted the event in 2011. This also has a particular NZ factor, now having a Kauri Backing Board . . . particularly cut by the woodworker . . .
We would obviously appreciate your early indication of attending.
We assure you of some terrific sailing.
