ABC Open Championships 26th & 27th September
Subject to Auckland reaching Alert Level 2, the first dial-up will commence at 10am Saturday 26th. The extended track at Ardmore will make for great fun, fast sailing and plenty of passing opportunities. There is a great deal of detail and set up to be finalised before racing can start. It would help the volunteer track and timing crews if all sailors registered early. Refunds will be given if the event is cancelled due to Covid 19.

The club’s open invitation to sail on an extra-long track and wrest our trophies away, normally attracts many entrants from other clubs. Hopefully they will be able to support this event during these uncertain times.
