The TIWAL NZ fleet had a great day at Maraetai on Saturday 26th November. The weather was great and we started the day with lots of fun and laughter with an assembly race, followed by beach starts, short races, a shared picnic and a longer course in the afternoon.
Congratulations, John Rusk, from Wellington, for winning the TIWAL Cup!
On Sunday a few hardy sailors braved the slightly wet conditions at Royal Akarana Yacht Club for a harbour course.
Thank you to the owners for making this a special weekend. We are inspired to keep the events going over the summer and look forward to more days on the water together.
Thank you also to the supporters of TIWAL, Rob Dickson, Anna Wirth-Hogan and Tim Hogan, who helped us on the day.
Thank you very much to the sponsors:
Maraetai Sailing Club
The Gibbs/Lane Family for the support boat.
and Catherine Henshaw for the trophy!
Here is an update from France:
Tiwal is going to be 10 years old this year! 10 years of adventure, joy, challenges, but above all, 2,500 Captains in more than 50 countries.
In 2012, Designer Marion Excoffon took on a crazy challenge: to fit a sailboat into two bags and send it off to sail on all the seas of the world.
And now, 10 years later, it's a team of 10 people and more than 50 suppliers, working together to spread the pleasures of sailing, with a range of four boats. We want to go further, and we have more surprises in store for you for the coming years! A big thank you to all those Captains for their confidence in us.
