The Interdom Sailing Regatta is an annual event which sees the cream of high school sailing talent from the Pacific Rim battling it out. In 2015, Kerikeri High School competed in Australia and won the tournament. That was the 16th time they had taken out the title in the 32 years the competition has been running.
On September 24th 2016 Kerikeri High School will defend their title. The mixed team of eight is Captained by Frankie Dair and includes Lewis Kidman, Francis Cassels, Maeve White, Emily Jones, Amber Hookway, Chris Geerkens and Jack Bunce.
The team spends at least 8 hours a week training so has little time to fundraise for equipment. We were so impressed with their dedication that we were more than happy to sponsor two new sets of practise sails. We wish them well with their endeavours and will keep you posted on how they fare at the Regatta.
