Happy Christmas and an Optimist New Year!


Happy Christmas to all the Irish Optimist sailors & parents and to all the families that visited Ireland in 2016 to sail with us.

As 2016 closes we in IODAI are looking forward to 2017 and have a full calendar of events scheduled around the country for you to participate in.  First up is the Spring Training Week in Baltimore in February.  Registration is now open and early signup is recommended!  Early entry is available until January 16th, after that a late fee applies.

Best wishes to the sailors who have graduated from Optimists in 2016 on to other classes.  You will be missed. We hope that you will always look back on your “Oppie days” fondly and remember with a smile where it all started for you!

We hope all our sailors and families enjoy the Christmas festivities and we are looking forward to seeing you in the New Year.
