2020 Hansa Class National Regatta
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.
