Title Sponsor Announced

Wakatere Boating Club is proud to announce Symonite as the Title Sponsor for the upcoming OK Dinghy World Championships to be sailed from Wakatere Boating Club on Auckland’s North Shore, in New Zealand, in February 2019.

Since confirming the event will be held in New Zealand, WBC has been in discussions with many local Auckland businesses and it was the enthusiasm of Symonite and its owner John Cobb for the club, the OK Class and the Worlds concept, and their strong support for sailing in NZ, that shone through. We are delighted to have them partner with us as our Title Sponsor. We will be sharing more about the event, and Symonite, in the build up to February with the OK global and local communities.
