School|s out and the Optimists are travelling!
Four Upcoming IODA Optimist Championships
July will see over 600 Optimist sailors from nearly seventy countries participating in the Worlds and three of the continental championships of the Optimist Class.
The Optimist Class is about selecting as many as possible so only a handful will be picked for more than one event. The U.S.A. for example will send 43 different sailors - five to the Worlds, eight to the Europeans and thirty to the North Americans.
