Oceanbridge NZL Sailing regatta

Image gallery from Day 2 of the Oceanbridge NZL Sailing Regatta held at Wakatere Boating Club at Narrow Neck, on Auckland’s North Shore.

Day 1 of the event was blown out with strong onshore winds and storm surf.

Day 2 was almost the complete opposite with light southerly/SW winds which came in a little stronger in the day allowing the Nacra 17’s and Windfoilers to get foilborne. Despite the lack of spray in the shots, the Windfoilers were sailing at almost three times windspeed – not quite in AC75 league, but very impressive nevertheless. With 23 entries, Windfoilers were the most popular class – less than 12 months after being selected as an Olympic class for the 2024 Olympic Regatta. By contrast the Kitefoil fleet only attracted five entries, none of which raced.

Enough races were sailed on the second and only day to meet the minimum required for the series.
