Four coaching sessions are offered on Saturday mornings from July 4th to 25th inclusive for Optimist and Topper sailors.

Objectives include (1) preparation of sailors interested in developing racing skills for club and national class events. (ii) improved sailing skills and fun on the water

  • Competent Optimist sailors who are qualified to minimum ISA level 2 or have equivalent frequent casual sailing experience e.g. “Water Time” sessions, club racing or IODAI event racing.
