Invitation to Join RC Laser Racing in Central Otago New Zealand
The RC Laser Central Otago New Zealand Icebreaker series will take place over 2 days on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 May 2017, at Conroys Dam.
The Dam, used to store water for irrigation since 1935, is in the picturesque Alexandra region of Central Otago, an area known for hot and dry summers and freezing winters.
Racing will start with the morning gun at 11am and race till 12pm ( lunch time), fitting in as many races as possible in the usual relaxed manner of RC Laser sailors. Afternoon racing will start at 1pm and finish at 3pm.
There will be a motorhome parked onsite to provide hot coffee or tea and a warm place for a break.
