Wakatere invites you to the OK Dinghy Worlds

Entries now open for the 2019 OK Dinghy World Championship to be hosted from 7 to 15 February 2019, at Wakatere Boating Club, Auckland, New Zealand.

This will be the seventh time the World Championship has been held in New Zealand, and the organisers are expecting this edition to be the biggest and best yet.

New Zealand has a strong tradition of OK Dinghy racing having won a total of 12 World titles since Clive Roberts became the first Kiwi to become OK Dinghy World Champion back in 1973, in Falmouth, UK.

The New Zealand National Championship will take place the weekend before the World Championship starts, and on the same racing area with the same race committee.

International competitors are invited to take part in the NZ Nationals as well.

The early February dates were chosen for the regatta as the weather is generally very settled with beautiful sea breezes and warm seas.

Entries are now officially open with the Notice of Race and online entry form being posted to the Event Website earlier this week.
