CORK went off super well this year! 128 Championship sailors and nearly 40 Green Fleeters!

We had great winds this year and some star sailors showed up. Stephan Baker, winner of the 2016/17 North Americans took home first place. Peter Foley was second. Liam O'Keefe was third, Sara Schumann was 4th and our Canadian Jackson Macaulay was 5th overall! Awesome job.

Summer of 2017 is well underway with most summer programs in full swing! Great to see so many new faces joining the Opti family.

1. The 2017 NAM wrapped up last week at RCYC. I personally wanted to call out the amazing organization skills of Kimberly Cudney and Felicity Rodness (Co-Chairs). Committees of dedicated current and former Opti-parents did an unbelievable job. To host an IODA event requires not just hosting the racing for up to 180 sailors, but housing them, feeding them, transporting them...and the supporting IODA delegates. It is a monumental acheivement.
