Well done to Niksen by Teammichel for a great first outing across the ditch, after only a few days off after delivering the boat.
SSANZ is proud to support Team Niksen, as they take home 1st 2H PHS and 5th 2H IRC in the 2023 Cabbage Tree Island Race against a strong shorthanded fleet. Now their focus turns to the main event, bring on the Rolex Sydney Hobart starting 26th December.
At the Yachting New Zealand Excellence Awards on Friday night, Sarah Wiblin was presented with a Service Award for her outstanding service to SSANZ as Media Officer for the last 5 years.
Her supreme commitment to the cause has seen SSANZ grow from strength to strength and retain large fleet sizes. To command this level of engagement with the sailing community is truly commendable and hasn’t come without huge effort on her part. Sarah has now stepped back from the role of media officer and resigned as a SSANZ committee member to take up a new full-time position as General Manager of the RNZYS.
We are very proud to see her contributions over the last 5 years be honoured at a national level and hope you can join us in congratulating her! ... See MoreSee Less
