Once competent at Green Fleet level our sailors are encouraged to move into the Open Fleet Division where they will compete against some of our more experienced Optimist sailors. The majority of our Open Fleet Division sailors compete at inter club and national level.
All our competitive Optimist sailors in both Green Fleet and Open Fleet Division are encouraged to take part in a mid-week coaching programme that runs throughout the season. Through this programme the sailors learn to develop their boat handling, boat tuning and tactical skills. The fleets are also encouraged and supported by the club to attend the numerous regattas throughout the season such as the Sir Peter Blake Regatta and Optimist Nationals
