British Keelboat Academy Challenge Cup 2013

20th May 2012 was the Volvo Gill Optimist Inland Championship and seven of our Oppi Sailors attended getting some pretty impressive results.

It was pretty full on. The weather conditions were good and racing was back to back all weekend. No break for lunch for Main Fleet that was full on for them.

Regatta came in for about 40 minutes at lunch. Cooking Pasta for four in 40 minutes was an art. Well done Darron, that camping burner worked a treat !

Mirror Sailing - "It's more fun with a chum!"

The Mirror dinghy is a fantastically versatile dinghy that can be sailed either as a single or double-handed boat. As a double-hander two junior sailors of varying ages or weights can sail her or many parent and child combinations. Its appeal is incredibly broad as it can be used as a boat to learn the very basics of sailing to one used for performance racing. There aren’t many boats that can seem just as at home cruising on the harbour as racing in international competitions.

Whether you are just about to take your first tentative step into sailing or an Olympic champion you have one thing in common, the Opi!
