2020 Hansa Class National Regatta

2020 Hansa Class National Regatta and Sailing Week

The Sailability Wellington Trust are proud to host of the 2020 Hansa Class National Championships. The regatta will be held at the Sailability Wellington’s Seaview base in Lower Hutt, with the Lowry Bay Yacht Club the Organising Authority.

The schedule for the competition is being set up so that sailors may sail in both Hansa 303 singles and 303 doubles.  The Hansa Liberty Class will also be run and the Kiwi Cup will also be a feature of the contest. Additionally, we are hoping to run the Ability Trophy (for sailors with ID, ABI or related disabilities) who would be sailing with a companion crew. We did this successfully in 2015 regatta held in Wellington. The regatta will include an opportunity for nine races for all divisions.  However, due to the race schedule, sailors will be unable to participate in the following class combinations: Liberty and HANSA 303 Doubles, HANSA 303 singles and the Ability Cup.

To participate in any of these events (or to volunteer) please register and notify your organising club. If you have any questions, please contact us.
