This event is the first major IOM event to be hosted by either of the two countries since the 1997 IOM World Championship held in Wellington (NZL) and the 2005 IOM World Championship held in Mooloolaba (AUS) and will be a regular international event scheduled on a bi-annual basis in non World Championship years with the venue alternating between the two countries.

Entries for the 2020 event will be limited to a maximum of 60 skippers with an allocation of 30 places being awarded to the host country, 20 places being awarded to Australia and 10 guests places allocated to skippers who reside outside of the two countries (guests should submit your expression of interest, further details will be announced shortly). Allocation of places for the AUS/NZL skippers will be based on the current ranking systems in both countries, so submit your expression of interest and focus on your national ranking table to qualify for a position on the start line in December 2020!

Get set for the Kiwi thunder from down-under IOM sailing feast where competitors will have the opportunity to take-in two IOM regatta’s making for a total of 7 days racing over a nine day period beginning with 3 days of sailing at the 2020 New Zealand IOM Championship fine tuning your skills to become razor sharp in readiness for the first IOM Oceania Regional Championship at beautiful Lake Pegasus.

New Zealand is absolutely awesome, being known for its incredible scenery, extensive mountain ranges, vast underground cave systems, gigantic glaciers, boiling hot springs, golden-sand beaches and rugged coastline. It’s also packed with cool cities, hidden spots, wonderful wildlife, and more. There are a million things to do in New Zealand. In fact, so many, we think you'd be silly to miss it!
