The 2024 Paris Olympics will have a mixed two handed offshore race! With the many talented sailors we have across our SSANZ fleet there is bound to be some familiar faces in the mix who will be looking to qualify to represent New Zealand! ... See MoreSee Less
The Young 88 Owners Association is excited by the opportunity this fantastic event creates and has been working on an initiative with Yachting New Zealand, the Shorthanded Sailing Association of New Zealand and others. The goal is to offer our economic and effective trainer / trial horse and a fleet of boats to ensure a quick start for New Zealand to qualify and ensure our sailors are competitive. Jim Young's brilliant and durable design might not be the latest and greatest but it was so far ahead of its time it remains relevant and well proven both short handed and offshore so meeting the brief as outlined by World Sailing.
