Greetings from Takapuna, New Zealand

The sailing waters off Takapuna have seen many yachting contests over the years and Takapuna Boating Club is proud to be hosting the 2014 A Class Cats.

The Takapuna Boating Club is well situated on a green reserve adjacent to the sandy beach, a 5 minute walk from the Spencer on Byron Hotel through the main shopping centre of Takapuna with its cafes, restaurants and wide range of shops to the beach and reserve where the boats will be stored throughout the event. The Club facilities are at your disposal throughout the events. 

The Organising Committee have been meeting regularly for the last two years so planning is well in hand.  The Notice of Race for the Worlds is now available on this website, as will be Notice of Race for the NZ Nationals.

We are delighted to have the services of Kerry Ellis & Mark Greene to assist us in presenting this world-class event with activities both on and off the water for competitors, families and friends.

We look forward to having you come and compete in 2014. It will be exciting racing over the two events – New Zealand Nationals and then the World Championship. 

Come to Takapuna and join the FUN.

I look forward to meeting you.

Evelyn Johnson
Chair of the Organising Committee
