BOISW 20th Anniversary is on – but we need your help!

Book your leave, sweet-talk your boss, do whatever you need to do to make sure you’re at the 20th Anniversary Edition of Bay of Islands Sailing Week from 24 to 27 January, 2023!

Following last year’s Covid cancellation, BOISW is back for our (belated) 20th anniversary bash, and you won’t want to miss it. Notice of Race and online entries will be available soon, so keep an eye out for those.

But in the meantime, we need your help…

Love Bay of Islands Sailing Week? Then join the team that makes it all happen.

With our AGM coming up, we’re on the hunt for new faces and new ideas on committee. Many of those involved have already given significant amounts of their time over the years and are ready to pass the torch.

You can be based anywhere because most of our meetings are now via Zoom. And don’t worry, many of our committee members race at BOISW too – you don’t need to be stuck on shore all week!

We are especially keen to see more representation from Auckland and the wider NZ sailing community that makes up such a large part of our participant base.

If you’d like to be part of making this much-loved event happen, wherever you’re based, we’d love to hear from you. Our AGM is on Monday 20 June 2022, so please get in touch before then if you think you might be keen to join us.
