The 2017 World Master Games are to be held in Auckland in April. Note that this is a different event to the 2017 World Laser Masters which will be later in the year in Croatia. As far as I can tell, the WMG are a sort of mini Olympics, with less performance enhancing but more anti inflammatory drugs, and better food and booze, for folk over 35. And you race for real medals, not plastic cubes.

The document at http://www.worldmastersgames2017.co.nz/media/1605/wmg-sailing-laser-shipping-from-australia-march-2016.pdf gives costs of charter boats (NZ$2,400 + 15% GST) and offers an alternative for return freight of your own Laser from Australia for NS$850 + GST. The latter option requires applying now.
If you have interest, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dear leader (email@example.com). We need to consider:
- whether we need to adjust our 2016-17 calendar, specifically club championships
- If we arrange a container to be loaded from DBSC
- If we arrange training ahead of the trip.
