Regatta postponed - Due to Covid-19


Update on new date/cancel decision by 9 Apr


Regatta Update re Covid-19

Worser Bay Boating Club and NZIODA are disappointed to announce the postponement of the 2020 Optimist Nationals scheduled for 10 - 14 April due to concerns and further complications surrounding the Covid 19 virus.

The decision was not made lightly, however, the health and welfare of sailors, supporters, and the wider community has taken priority. The club together with NZIODA is currently exploring options that can eventuate in a fun and memorable event for participants later this year at Worser Bay.

A new date for the 2020 Toyota Optimist Nationals will be announced by 9th April 2020. Should an alternative date not be workable, a notice of cancellation will be confirmed.

At this stage, current regatta entry fees will carry over to the new regatta date.

Many thanks for your patience as we look to confirm plans for the 2020 Toyota Optimist Nationals version 2.0.

warmest regards
