IODASA December clinic hosted at BSYC – Register Now!


Come along to the first Optimist Coaching Clinic of the season, which will include one of the world’s best Optimist Coaches, Fernando Alegre. We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to secure Fernando’s time to work with the coaches and fleets at this clinic.

Head coaches Dave Higgins (Open and Intermediate) and Brett Yardley (Green fleet) will oversee three days of fun coaching, designed to improve each sailor from fresh out of Tackers all the way through to the Open fleet. We will also have many other accomplished local sailors as coaches supporting the kids, including Josh Hinks, Brooke Gaffney, Ash Dyer, Sam Magarey and more.

Also, if you are a junior and are sailing in another class at any club and would like to take advantage of this exceptional opportunity, which is heavily subsidised by the association, please get in touch and we can try and get a loan or a very cheap charter boat for the clinic. Or even just pop in for a look, the canteen will be open each day.

Book in for either 2 or all 3 of the days. IODASA Member pricing

2 days $120, 3 days $165, $25 off a second child. $35 late fee after 12th December

Any other questions please get in touch with the association via the website
