2018 Spring Opti Racing Program
The Pleon Spring Opti program will include 10 days of coaching at Pleon on Saturdays and Sundays and 2 days of coaching at the Newport Challenge Regatta. It is open to Opti sailors who want to up their game this year and get a jump on the season. The focus will give sailors the opportunity to build racing skills and strategies and then put them into practice at the Newport regatta in June.
