Monaco Optimist Academy, organised by the Yacht Club of Monaco
24 November 2017 - 26 November 2017
Monaco Optimist Academy, organised by the Yacht Club of Monaco from Friday 24 November to Sunday 26 November, Baie de Monaco.
Mediterranean Optimist Academy Series
To encourage youngsters to aim high in sailing, the Yacht Club de Monaco is organising the first event of its Mediterranean Optimist Academy Series this winter. 120 children are set to take part in the fleet race regatta. It will be slightly unusual in that coaches will be allowed to approach contestants during the races to give them valuable tips on tactics and manoeuvres.
The original concept is designed to help the young generation progress. The Club winner will receive an invitation to compete in the international Monaco Optimist Team Race (MOTR) a few weeks later, 11-14 January 2018.
