Following extensive consultations and vote, it has been decided to reschedule the National Championships, which will now take place on the weekend of 11th and 12th May.
Please confirm as soon as possible via email to email@example.com that you intend to take part (YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR MIND LATER). Please include the name of your boat in any correspondence.
As previously advised, it is intended to run the regatta from Westhaven (per the Auckland Championships in February). The race area will be between Bean Rock and Rangitoto (weather dependent) and all boats will return to Westhaven each day after racing (under tow if possible).
The will be a prize giving after racing on Saturday at Swashbucklers, including spot prizes from various sponsors including North Sails, Coast New Zealand and Mount Gay Rum.
Please also confirm by email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a power boat available to assist with RO duties and/or to tow boats home after racing. Any help is much appreciated.
Racing instructions will be posted here in doe course, together with a list of entries.
The AGM usually takes place after raciing on the last day of the nationa Champs - because nothing puts sailors in a party mood more than a properly constituted and quorate meeting. However, I am proposing that we dispense of any business of the National Association via written resolutions, to be circulated before the National Champs.
If there are any matters that you wish to be raised and discussed, please use this forum.
In the event that it is not possible to reach a resolution on any matter, an AGM may of course be held in the usual way following the National Champs...
