Optimist Winter / Spring Coaching Program

The Oppie winter training program kicks off this coming Sunday 25th February! We will be hosting a quick introduction to the program for parents on Sunday 25th at 11:30 am in the Jury Room.

Our Junior Oppie program typically has a group of between 6 and 10 sailors aged between 9 and 11 years of age. 

Spring 2018 we will run 3 programs on the following dates:


February/ March Course: 25th Feb, 4th March, 11th March, 18th March
April Course: 15th April, 22nd April, 29th April
May Course: 6th May, 13th may, 27th May

There are 2 levels of ability catered for:


sailors who are able to tack, gybe, beat, run, reach and are able to get around a race course. These sailors are not yet racing but are looking to learn some of the basic skills and rules. 


sailors who are looking to start racing in the IODAI junior fleet in 2018. These sailors have mastered the basic sailing rules and are now focusing on race technique, rules and start strategy.
