Support the NZL Sailing Foundation and young sailors

We’re once again humbled and grateful to receive funding from the NZL Sailing Foundation for CRC Bay of Islands Sailing Week in 2021.

NZL Sailing Foundation is an independent trust that helps Kiwi sailors to achieve their dreams, supporting amateur sailors to compete on the world stage, as well as local grass roots sailing organisations and events like BOISW.

We’re proud to share the objectives of the NZL Sailing Foundation, and we’re committed to supporting the work they do by creating opportunities for keen young sailors to take part in BOISW, giving them a unique experience of competitive keelboat regatta racing.

For the last few years, our ‘Room For One More’ programme has placed young sailors from local clubs on board boats with room for extra crew members. If you’d like to be part of the programme, we’d love to hear from you, whether you have room on board for the whole regatta or just a day or two.

If you can give a young local sailor a spot on board, please contact David Krebs, or 027 849 5504.
