Harken International Invitation Optimist Regatta
Optimist Worlds 2011 organisers are pleased to announce Harken New Zealand are the sponsor for the Harken International Invitation Regatta 28 - 29 December 2011, Napier.
The two day regatta is a warm up competition for the Worlds competitors being just days before the first race of the World Championship on the 1st January 2012.
Most of the Optimist Worlds sailors will be in Napier by this time and will be competing to gain valuable time on the water, racing in the same area as the Worlds will be contested.
In addition to the Worlds competitors there will be up to 100 of New Zealand's top and up and coming Optimist sailors. This will give the kiwi kids a great opportunity to sail against the Worlds fastest and most experienced Optimist sailors.
