Throughout the summer there will be numerous exciting opportunities to race, regardless of skill level. Each regatta below will have at least 1 PLSS instructor in attendance, as well as a coach boat.
2023 OPTIMIST REGATTAS:
For each OPTI regatta, PLSS will provide a trailer with space available for transport. Trailer space is allocated First-Come-First-Served, so if you need trailer space, please get your boat loaded early. We ask that if you are planning on attending the regatta, and can bring your own boat, you do so, leaving trailer space available for sailors who need it.
There is a live Google Form for regatta signing up for trailer space on each Optimist Class page starting at Opti Step 2 Class and above.
We may also ask for parent volunteers to tow a trailer to each event, so if you are planning on attending, please let us know!
