Calling all South Island Sailors

As I hope you already know this seasons Laser Nationals are being held at Naval Point from the 17th to the 21st January 2018. The notice of race and entry form can be found on the NZLA website at 2018 NZ National Laser Champs - Naval Point.
There will be a good contingent of North Islanders attending but I am writing to ensure that we make the most of the opportunity of having the Nationals in Christchurch and get a many South Island sailors as possible at the event. There will be divisions for Youth, Open and Masters in both Radial and Standard rig so there should be a suitable division for everyone.
There will also be two days of coaching for competitors before the contest, organised by NZLA and conducted by some of our top sailors. There is no charge for taking part in this coaching so hopefully many of you can benefit from the opportunity to hone some skills that you can then apply in the contest.
So we would encourage you to enter early to assist NPCL with their planning and to encourage all your friends and club mates to give it a go and come and enjoy some top class racing and socialising. Also don't forget the South Island Laser Champs, coming up in a couple of weeks at Naval Point.
If anyone would like any further info please feel free to contact either me (Nick Page, 021 908 596, ) or the NPCL organiser Milton Bloomfield ( 
We hope to see you there.
