The Midlands region enjoys the support of a number of excellent sailing clubs and we are building our Optimist fleet!  We have a good schedule planned for 2024 with something to support everyone, so if you're new to sailing and want to get involved reach out and we will help to get you started. 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.
