Life after Oppies
When a sailor reaches the decision that they must sadly leave Optimist sailing it's good to know the options that are available to them.
Lots of sailors decide to leave oppies for many different reasons e.g.
- Their weight & size no longer make them competitive
- Would like to sail a double-handed boat
- Their friends have moved onto another class
- No longer having fun in an Optimist
If sailing an Optimist is no longer enjoyable (for whatever the reason) then it's time to move on.
This new section of the website is designed to inform sailors of the different classes available to them when they leave Oppies. IODAI will not promote one class over another that is a decision for the sailor in consultation with their parents to make. Please click on the links on the right hand side to access information on the junior sailing options available.
Hopefully over time this section will grow to encompass lots of information on the different options we have asked the other classes to provide information for this section and as soon as it becomes available it will be posted here.
If the meantime we wish you Farewell....Solong....Adieu.... Aufwiesen....Goodbye and wish you every success in the future.
