The Canadian Optimist Championships (COCs)
The COCs are held every year, normally on the 3rd week of August. The event rotates between a West, Central and East location. Due to Covid, the events in 2020 and 2021 that were supposed to be held at Chester Yacht Club in Nova Scotia were cancelled. Details on the 2022 event will be released shortly.
This event consists of a Fleet Racing Championship and a Team Racing Championship and it serves as the only qualifier event for the Canadian sailors to the IODA Worlds, IODA Europeans, IODA North Americans and IODA South Americans.
Bids to host this event are to be presented at CODA´s AGM during the COCs every year. (The 2020 and 2021 AGMs were/will be held via Zoom).
