News Winning Doyle Optimist t-shirt designs

24 Oct 2016

Earlier in the year, as sponsors of the New Zealand International Optimist Dinghy Association Nationals held at Kohimarama Yacht Club, Doyle Sails NZ ran a competition to design the next run of our popular kids t-shirts, with the prize being a brand new Doyle Optimist red sail.

We were thrilled to receive a wide range of incredibly creative entries to choose from. One family group took it to the next level, though, with entries from not one, not two, but three members of the Hume family – Rebecca, Megan and  Nicola – members of KYC, that were stand out leaders. It was a tough task to pick an overall winner but it was Megan who took out the win with her amazing design, congratulations Megan!

The girls recently came out to visit the loft, collect their t-shirt designs and be congratulated by Andrew Brown, One Design manager.
