First Overseas Entry

11 August 2007

Harald Faeste, winner of both 2007 Open Pac Rims and Nationals is the first overseas entry received for the BIG 2008 Opti Summer Sailing Season.

Harald was the top 13 year old at the Opti Worlds in Sardinia Italy last month finishing 19th overall.

Harald's father, Kristian will be using the three events on the Mornington Peninsula as training during the European winter for his tilt at the 2008 Worlds in Turkey.

There is much interest from overseas and AIODA expects a large increase in the number of countries and overseas competitors at these events over last year.

Pac Rim & Clinic host club Mornington will boast its own fleet of 20+ IOD'95 up from 6 boats last year and 10 OziOpti 'Poly' boats in green fleet, and it is hoped that McCrae, Black Rock, Sandringham and RMYS will all have their boats to add to the Victorian contingent.
