Our talented young sailors have been selected to represent New Zealand in the Optimist sailing events overseas.
A squad of 26 of New Zealand's strongest Optimist sailors were selected based on results from the NZ Optimist Nationals held in Kohimarama over Easter, and their national ranking from the season ranking regattas.
