Class Documents

All the activities of IOCA(UK) are undepinned by a wide range of policies, guidelines and operating procedures. As a Class we are keen to share this information freely so that members can appreciate and understand how the Class functions and for decision making and actions to be as transparent as possible. We are indebted to both the RYA and previous committee members for leading the way and developing these guidelines over many years. With the election of a new committee in Novemebr 2022 we are beginning the process of reviewing and updating our Class paperwork. As documents are finalised we will upload them onto this webpage but if you require any information in the mean time please contact John Perham at admin@optimist.org.uk
