This year’s GuyFawkes Blast is back at the Ohope Beach Holiday Park . The BEST place stay and sail in the bay! Love that beach!
Ohope Beach is shaped like a hockey stick, allowing a coarse to be set with both tacking and a long reach leg on every lap with lots of terrain to negotiate along the way.
This year’s format will be circuit racing on Saturday and the Ohope Beach Challenge on Sunday; a one hour long coarse race on with all the fleet sailing together (wind and safety permitting).
All trophy’s (class3, 5 & mini) are up for grabs (if we can find them). Please return our trophy’s if you have one!
Social sailors; please do not sail into the designated race areas!
Steer well clear of pedestrian traffic and fishermen. The Ohope Beach and harbour entrance is a favourate fishing spot for the locals. They have right of way all the time!
OBSS sailing Rules as usual. Helmet and footwear are compulsory for all pilots and passengers at all times.
See you at Ohope.
