  1. This forum is an avenue to raise considerations for the next edition of the regulations (2021 - 2024). If you have more immediate concerns, contact Angus Willison at angus@yachtingnz.org.nz.
  2. Just a heads up, I won't be giving any direct answers to requests for change - I'm not a subject matter expert on some of this stuff.

Non-affiliated classes were invited and some took part, i.e. the Open Bic. I can't tell you why classes like the PT, Hobie and Viper were not able to be there as I was not coordinating the class responses. This was an attempt for us to try something different, try to reach out to the public and have something hands on. We were also thinking of trying to showcase to young sailors already engaged what classes they might like to move in to when they grow out of
