Oceania Laser Master Championships 2018

Dear Sailors, two changes have been made to improve the Oceania Fiji Masters in October.

Firstly we have combined the Radial event with the Standard Rig one to be run between 13th and 19th October (with racing 15th to 19th October) i.e. same as for the original Standard Rig event. We will have enough charter boats to manage this and having the two rigs together will make a better and more exciting event.

Second we have introduced the new Corinthian Category to allow sailors aged 21 to 34 to participate. This category is proving popular with local sailors. Read below for details.

The Notice of Race posted HERE and the on line entry HERE now reflect these two changes.

Entries for the event will cut off on the 13th September, please make sure you have your charter booking in by July 31st with PSA.

Are you a Corinthian?

 What makes a Corinthian sailor when it comes to Laser sailing­?

 Well that’s pretty easy to answer. If you’re aged between 21 and 34 then you’re eligible to compete in Fiji for the inaugural Oceania Laser Masters Championship!

 The Corinthian division is brand spanking new division for this event, and has been brought to the registration table due to popular demand, and because Fiji is such an awesome drawcard, everyone wants to race there!

 Registrations are flying in for the event which will be based on the beach at the Sofitel Spa and Resort, just a mainsheet length away from the cocktail bar and even closer to the waters edge.

 The Corinthian division has been trial in the past and is aimed at those who are no longer youth and not yet an apprentice, who are not campaigning for an Olympic event but who want to stay involved with the biggest sailing fleet in the world. Of course if you are campaigning for the Olympics, then you’re welcome to enter as well!

 So if you’re aged between 21 and 34, and you’re keen to hit up Fiji in October, then get your entry in and register for the Oceania Laser Masters Championship! There are some epic deals available through event partners Fiji Airways and the Sofitel Spa and Resort, so check them out and we will see you there!
