The Irish Optimist National & Open Championships are now open for entries. International sailors (sailors who are paying members of their local (non-Irish) national Optimist body) are very welcome.

You have two options to register and you will not be asked to pay annual dues to the Irish Optimist Association.

Option one: Foreign teams who decide to register and pay all at once, as a team.

Option two: Foreign sailors who decide to register as individual families (which could include foreign teams who ask their team member’s parents to register, for example)

For either option, the following steps apply.

  1. Create an IODAI account
  2. Add sailors (be sure and use non-IRL sail numbers to signify foreign status)
  3. Register the sailors for the event and pay

Looking forward to seeing you in Lough Derg, in August!
