Alinghi donate boat shed to Hokianga sailing club

Recommended Posts

This is really cool and a good thing.


I've often felt that sailing could help kids and teens who are otherwise at a loose end to avoid the pitfalls of life.


Christina just said that instead of becoming street kids and thieves they'll now become pirates ;)

Which is so bloody typical, 


But then this, 




Which is again, awesome.




These guys should hold an annual challenge with the kids from Kerikeri...

I wonder if our resident ynz evangelist could tell us all how much help, if any , ynz gave here? Seems to me something they should be supporting but of course no fancy office or money in it for them i guess.

I could see the reply YNZ would give...


They would transfer blame to thier funding bodies requirements, who would demand maximum brand profile exposure in the high population areas... namely Auckland and do not see northland as a priority


But they will never front this. Like they never front any issue regarding clubs growth.


Maybe Alingi could donate another shed for YNZ's headquarters....
