Calling all parents - Monday night racing for 'beginner' Optimists

03 July 2015

Starting Monday nights from 6th July, this is an opportunity for your son or daughter to take part in ‘coached’ Optimist racing which will take place just outside the harbour, (weather permitting) or if too breezy sometimes racing will take place in the harbour. HYC coach Mark Condy will be supervising the children - Mark is an experienced coach and is presently head coach for the IODAI (International Optimist Dinghy Association of Ireland) Regatta Fleet. An assistant coach may also be required if numbers dictate. 

Parents are asked to confirm via email on the each Monday by 1pm if your child(ren) is/are taking part. This is important that we have confirmation as we need to assess the number of coaches required and we will give preference to confirmed attendees if ratio of coach / child is too high.
