From the 13th to 18th April, the Napier Sailing Club is hosting the 2017 Toyota NZ Optimist National Championships (Optinational) and we’ve developed a mobile app that has everything you need to know about the event. Teams from Australia, Tahiti, New Caledonia and up and down New Zealand will be competing so we knew we had to make this app special.
The app features a social calendar with upcoming events that are part of the Championship festivities, including a family roast night on Monday 17th April. Detailed routes are available to the various locations if you aren’t familiar with Napier and you can save the events to your phone so you have no excuse for being tardy.
Results for the open fleet, green fleet and team racing will be uploaded to the app during this year’s event so you can stay up-to-date with your team’s progress. All the information about the team that’s organising the event can also be found on the app including contact details for the coach and crew liaisons, in case you run into any problems in the lead up to the Championships.
There is sure to be a lot of out-of-towners at the event so NZIODA has compiled a list of nearby accommodation options and links to their websites to help competitors and supporters organise their trip. Hotels can be expensive during an event like this so Marineland Motel, as a sponsor of the Napier Sailing Club, is offering competitors and their families a 10% discount during their stay. All you need to know about this great bargain can be found in the accommodation section on the app.
This year’s OptiNational event is gearing up to be the best one yet, so make sure to download the app before the action really starts. Click here if you have an Apple device and here for Android. Happy Sailing everyone!
