Published 13:58 on 5 Apr 2017
The 2017 Rooster Southern Optimist Travellers Series started this year in Burghfield on 25 March and will travel to various clubs around the south throughout the summer. The Royal Victoria Yacht Club is delighted that one weekend of the series will be hosted by our club in Fishbourne on 22 and 23 April. RVYC is the only Island club hosting this series this year.
The IOCA run event comprises ten regattas at clubs including Chichester, Poole and even the Channel Islands. The events are once again sponsored by Rooster with plenty of Rooster prizes for the top podium places. There will be two fleets - the Regatta Fleet, which is an ideal fleet for first-time racers and the Main Fleet, for the seasoned Optimist racer. This event is always well attended and our Island youngsters will be able to compete against some of the more experienced Optimist sailors on the circuit. The club is grateful to Wightlink for their continued sponsorship and support, enabling mainland entrants to travel to the event To date we have over 30 participants registered and look forward to welcoming their families and sponsors to the club. Our huge thanks to the organisers and all the volunteers for what will be a fab weekend of racing !
