Greetings Landsailors,


 The 2012 Guy Fawkes Blast is back at the Ohope Beach Holiday Park once again .. The BEST place stay and landsail in the bay! Love that beach! Guy Fawkes may be well over by the 16th but we can still get a blast down the beach in our rocket ships. Ohope is looking great this year. We have had plenty of storms this year, which have eroaded more of the land back into beach. Not good news for some, but it sure makes for great sailing!

Ohope Beach is shaped like a hockey stick, allowing a coarse to be set with both tacking and a long reach legs on every lap with lots of terrain to negotiate along the way. This year we will be making the most of our beautifull beach east of the camp. The course will be set down to the spit and back.


 This year’s format is Free Sailing Friday and Saturday The Ohope Beach Challenge. The challenge this year will consist of long coarse races with all the fleet sailing together. (wind and safety permitting).


Steer well clear of pedestrian traffic and fishermen. The Ohope  Beach and harbour entrance is a favourite 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.
