MEMBERSHIP

The New Zealand O’pen BIC Association will lead the development of our young sailors by ensuring the O’pen BIC class offers quality regional, provincial, and national competition while retaining a strong foundation of fun, adventure, and friendship among the sailors and their families.
The Association will contribute significant resources to running events such as race officer support, world class coaching, event prizes, and much more. Annual NZOBA membership costs $30 and sailors are required to be members to participate in NZOBA events.
