The 2020 North Island Open was hosted by the Hawke’s Bay Club at the Higgins Blokart Park, Napier on the
7th and 8th November 2020. This is the first time Hake’s Bay has hosted this event.
The track extensions were only completed on Friday morning – so the new seal was put to the test over the two days. On Saturday the performance lights and Supers raced together – on Sunday they were raced separately. With the Wind on Sunday a couple of corners got a bit cut up and the lose seal proved challenging for some – quite a few sin outs, capsizes, and drifting around corners. It was also great seeing the junior sailors having a great time as well.
Well done to Hawke’s Bay Club for hosting a very successful NIO.
