As we head towards the main Optimist racing season there are plenty of opportunities coming up where you can put your IOCA Winter Training to good use!
Firstly we have the Regional Training Regatta @ Burghfield on Saturday April 13th. Catering for Regatta Fleet sailors this is sure to be a great event with a good turnout expected from those who’ve been training @ Spinnaker, Bosham & Burghfield during the winter.

Although not strictly speaking in the South, we then head up to Grafham Water SC for their two day Easter Egg event on Fri/Sat April 19th/20th. This event also includes racing for Topper and PY Handicap classes so bring your friends from other Youth classes along. After racing on Saturday there’s an Easter Egg Hunt for all participants 🙂

Then it’s back down South for the Regatta Fleet Open at Spinnaker Sailing Club on Saturday April 27th. Catering for both Regatta and Coached Regatta sailors, Spinnaker SC is an ideal venue for those new to Open meetings. Parents, friends and family can even watch the racing from the club veranda.
