420 quiz night fundraiser at Evans Bay

QUIZ NIGHT – Help get Wellington youth get to the 420 World Championship in Freemantle
We’re holding a Quiz night at the Evans Bay Yacht Club on the 2nd September and we’d love you to come along.
Darby, Helena, Andre, Finlay, Hamish, Alex, Daniel and Ryan are a group of eight young Wellington sailors who’ve been selected for the NZ team competing at the 2017 420 Class World Championships in Fremantle, Australia in December this year. This is an awesome opportunity for them all and their first International sailing competition.
They’ve all been sailing individually in junior and youth classes for approximately 5 years after completing Learn to Sail programmes and are current members of sailing clubs in the Wellington region. Last year we all also joined the sailing academy (TRIYA) based in Evans Bay. TRIYA introduced us to sailing as a team in 420’s, that taught us a whole new skill level.
We competed at the 420 Nationals at Evans Bay in March and finished with such great results we were selected to represent New Zealand at the Worlds.
So come along, bring family and friends, and help us get there.
Thanks from the Wgtn 420 Worlds Team 2017
