2022 IOCA (UK) Optimist British National & Open Championships

Largs Sailing Club

30th July - 5th August 2022

Welcome to the IOCA (UK) Optimist Nationals event page. This year's event will be held in Largs, a friendly seaside town set in the scenic waters of the Firth of Clyde on the west coast of Scotland. With fleets to suit sailors just starting their racing career through to experienced racers looking for some tough competition, the week will be one to remember. Don't forget to pack your dancing shoes for the midweek Ceilidh (pronounced kay-lee, a traditional Scottish evening of highland dancing and merriment!)

Further details are given in the NoR which can be found further down this page.

All UK sailors should please ensure that you are a current IOCA member before entering. You can join IOCA via this link.  

International sailors must be a member of their national Optimist association. Additionally,  please create an account with IOCA via this link, selecting the "International Sailor Membership for 2022" when creating a membership application. This does not give you membership of IOCA but will allow you to enter events/trainings via this website. 

The event can't run without volunteers! Please consider what you can do to help.

For those wishing to volunteer to helm or crew a safety or mark-laying rib , please use this link 

If you are able to bring a rib then please use this link to register the details

If ribs are not for you then don't worry there will be plenty of other roles to help out with, details of which will be published at a future date.

We look forward to seeing you at Largs.
