For those on our Facebook page, you have seen the winter schedules released by both RCYC and RNSYS. All opti sailors are welcome to contact Coach Flor or Coach Oz to discuss what would be worth attending this winter! Year round sailing is one of the best paths to your continued development. Those CODA sailors attending IODA events are especially encouraged to take advantage of these opportunities. Coach Fede from BQYC will be down in Uruguay for the SUD test event in Dec '17 and potentially the Argentina Nationals, please contact him for details if interested in attending.
This is just a sample of some of the plans coming together for the winter. Please let CODA help you connect with any of the teams attending these. Please don't be shy. Everyone is open to including your sailor in these...
Oct 7-8 Bahama Nationals
Nov Bermuda Nationals
Nov 24-25 at Southern YC in New Orleans - the US Midwinters. Great spot, US Thanksgiving. Sourthern hospitality.
At Christmas, the Orange Bowl is a hugely popular event, however sells out most years.
March 3-4 is the FL State Champs (Sunshine States) which draws a couple hundred sailors to Jensen Beach's US Sailing center - amazing location and warm water!
March 6-11 and 13-17 will have another training camp at Miami.
The challenge in Opti sailing is to manage all the options!
Talk to your coaches and CODA reps and let's all get together in the winter to collaborate and train together to improve Canada's sailing future!
