Both sail to the first mark and perform a ‘man overboard’, then sail to the second mark and perform a capsize. First boat (on handicap) across the finish line wins!


Optimist sailors grab your parents for the Parent and Child Race! Starting at the slip, parents sail the oppi round the mark and back to the slip before handing over to their partner. The child will sail the same course with the winning boat first to finish at the slip.
