Some ideas to fill the Christmas stocking

Issue date

It's not long until Christmas, so here are a couple of ideas for some stocking fillers.

Zhik New Zealand, a partner of Yachting New Zealand, have the NZL Sailing Team supporter merchandise range, with anything from caps to spandex vests. This is a great way to show your support for this country's top Olympic class sailors and a percentage of profits is invested back into Yachting New Zealand.

Zhik New Zealand's Auckland showroom will be open for two late nights in December - December 6 and 13 between 4pm and 8pm. You can find them at 41 Station Road in Penrose.

During those times, you've also be able to pick up:

  • discounted junior starter packs
  • discounted 2018 Coastal Classic gear
  • Gift cards for that hard-to-buy-for person
  • Experts on hand to talk about their sailing apparel

Yachting New Zealand also have a number of resources available, including the Sailing Games book. This is a great way to add variety to sessions, whether you're training to win or just sail with your mates.

This book is a collection of 40 games, 10 for onshore, and each game has a description, rules, variations on how it can be played, the equipment required and tips for smooth running and the aim of the game, which is useful if you’re looking to practice a particular skill.

These games can be played in all types of boats from dinghies to windsurfers, catamarans to keelboats, and many of the games can be played with as few as two boats.
