For anyone looking for Opti Coaching opportunities in Florida, we have two great ones over the next couple weeks.
– US Sailing Junior Olympic Festival @ the US Sailing Center of Martin County -Dec 3&4 – 65 boats signed up in Opti RWB for this typically good wind venue. Can take care of charter boat if needed.
– Clinic at USSCMC -Dec 10&11 – 10 kids signed up so far so it will be a small group. A few of my old sailors are joining me to help with the coaching. Registration fees go entirely to the Sailing Center as a fundraiser to support their community sailing programs.
For registration information on either event go to www.usscmc.org
If you would like to sail with us at the JO contact me

Mehvish, Gray, Thomas, and Aaron recently sailed in one of the coolest Opti events around at Lauderdale YC. With provided boats and sails, all the sailors need to bring is their gear. We ended up 10th of 16 teams though that does not tell the whole story for this event. We raced some close races against the top teams and all kids learned a lot. I encourage everyone to get this event on the calendar for next year.
