Optimist European Championships
Gran Canaria

1 August is the official arrival date for sailors at the IODA European Championship, with racing to start on 3 August.
232 sailors from 35 countries are entered. Under IODA (International Optmist Dinghy Association) regulations, these are different sailors from the 208 who participated in the IODA Worlds last month. Entries are restricted to eight sailors per country (16 for Spain as the host Country) with not more than five of the same gender. Charter boats are mandatory due to the cost of individual transport to the island venue.

Check both the IODA website and the RCN de Gran Canaria (the Spanish host yacht club) website for news on the event.
