IOCA Midlands Regatta Fleet Training   iCal entry for this event

Training and race development for all Optimist helms who are able to sail a triangular course.

The IOCA Midlands Regatta Fleet Programme 2020 aims to give our young sailors in the Midlands region an opportunity to have fun sailing together and to support and develop them to compete in the regatta fleet at regional race events this year. Qualified instructors and coaches will lead each session, providing skills development and race training. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain a head start for next season. We will be loosely following the programme in the IOCA Logbooks, starting from RYA-IOCA Conversion (see Documents). 

Come, join in and make friends with other optimist sailors from our region.
