The Midlands area enjoys the support of a number of sailing clubs in the region and we are looking to re-build our Optimist fleet after the little gap with COVID-19!  We will be building with a few open events and training this summer (2022) into a winter Programme and a Midlands Summer traveler series for 2023. So if you know any oppie sailors in the midlands that want to get involved get them to get involved we would love to welcome you into the IOCA Midlands family!

Some of you may be new to the Optimist, but do come along to one of the coaching or open events anyway and join in the fun, meet new people and make some new friends!

If you have already taken part and have any ideas or suggestions as to how we could improve them, or if you have any other comments or queries, please contact Ian Renard (IOCA Midlands Area Rep) at midlands@optimist.org.uk with your feedback.
