Optimist Training

Optimist training is initially about developing confidence on the water and learning basic sailing skills. After new sailors have learnt the basics of sailing, we develop them further and give them opportunities to do trips and learn racing skills. Optimists are excellent boats to learn in as they are hard to capsize and can be sailed by young, lightweight sailors even in strong winds. Lots more information about Optimists on the Optimist Class Association website.We have six club Optimists and 6 club SailQubes (indestructable Optimists) so that sailors can use a club boat for training.
