For 2018, CODA will be giving away Buffs to its members. Please see your provincial rep at the next regatta to collect yours (if you are paid up for 2018)! Being a member of the class is mandatory for racing your optimist in Canada. Throughout your racing career, you will always be required to be a member of the class of sailboat you race. This ensures you have an organization behind the scenes organizing and planning the events, rules and regulations that support fair and active racing. Being a part of a class is part of sailing.

Guest coach Agustin Ferrario of RNSYS decended on CVDM in Vaudreuil this past weekend to run the second annual QC CODA Clinic. We had a great turnout.  16 coaches attended the "Coach the Coach" portion of the clinic and 37 sailors attended! 

Quebec rep Natacha Brunet was the leader of the clinic. Great assistance from Carmen Denis and Christine Musiejczyk helped the clinic set up and run smoothly.

Thanks to CVDM for hosting this year's edition, and to FVQ for their contribution.
