Optimist Spring Training 2015

As you may know the more experienced Optimist sailors have been sailing throughout the winter. Further training has been arranged for these sailors on the 14-16th March and 28 & 29th March. 

We would like to provide for those sailors in the Transition Group on these dates also.  The transition group comprises sailors who have up to now been sailing in the Regatta fleet but intend to graduate to the Main Fleet in Regional events during 2015.

There will be a charge of approximately €30 per day. If your child is interested in sailing on these dates could you please let me know so I can get an idea on numbers.
