Gill OptiAUS 2018 - EOI for Charter boats & Chandlery

OptiAUS works in association with a Host club to conduct an Australian & Open Championship each year.  The “Gill OptiAUS 2018”  Championships event will be held at the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron, Manly Queensland between 3rd -10th January.   

The OptiAUS Committee are looking to work with a suitable operator to provide charter boats & chandlery service to both interstate and international visitors participating in the event.

The 2017 event hosted 262 competitors, of which 33 were from overseas - early interest in the event indicates that these numbers may be improved on for 2018.

Only boats registered in the sailor’s name, or chartered from an approved charterer,  will pass measurement and be allowed to enter in the event, as will be detailed in the event NOR and SI documents.

OptiAUS aims to develop this event to provide a sailing fiesta atmosphere for both competitors and extended family members over this peak holiday time of the year, encouraging family involvement and enjoyment of the sport.    

OptiAUS is looking to partner with a supplier of Optimist class boats and chandlery supplies to provide the best service possible to sailors for this event.  

Interested parties please contact the OptiAUS Secretary by email :

EOI closing date 1 July 2017.
