Oppie Training

IOCA South Regional Regatta - 28 April 2018

The young Optimist sailors who have been training hard over the winter with the Thames Valley or South IOCA training will be putting their new skills to the test at the IOCA South Regional Regatta on Saturday 28 April.

This is a completely new initiative this year, and has been well receieved by parents and sailors.... so much so, that the event is heavily oversubscribed! We have just over 50 sailors in Regatta Racing and 17-20 in Coached Regatta Fleet, so it's set to be the biggest event of the year so far!

We are looking for additional help on the day, so if you'd like to get involved either on the water - Safety Boat assistants, or on shore helping with registration, lunch and carparking, then please contact theclub office as soon as possible.

Easter Boats

Happy Easter - Bank Holiday Series 1 & 2

More about Bank Holiday Races
  • Usually each Bank Holiday from Easter Monday to the end of August there are a couple of races held.
  • Tend to have fewer people racing than on a Sunday or Wednesday, so the water is not crowded.
  • A good opportunity to swap helms or crews, to try new ideas, or to gain more experience.
  • Normally the Bank Holiday Races are Pursuit Races. With a 100-minute race in the morning (start at 11:00 = finish at 12:40); and a 70-minute race (start at 13:50 = finish at 15:00) in the afternoon.
  • The races held count towards the Bank Holiday series results.
