The New York State Optimist Championship will be held June 15 at the Waterfront Center in Oyster Bay, NY. There should be around 50 Red, White, and Blue Optimist sailors racing in West Harbor, the same location of the last NY State champs, in 2011. JC Hermus looks to defend his title from that year, but it won’t be easy in the always competitive NY area Opti fleet. This should be a great kick-off to the summer sailing season.
If you sailor would like coaching for this event, we have one more practice, June 1-2, before the regatta to get prepared.
