Season's Greetings & Fair Winds in 2019!

Thank you to our IODA Members, family and friends from all over the world for making this past year such a success in the Optimist Class. 

Thousands of young sailors had the opportunity to take part in an Optimist event somewhere in the world because of your dedication to the Optimist Class. Thanks for all your continued passion, time and effort in making the Optimist Class the largest and most universal youth sailing class in the world.

We also want to thank our many builders and suppliers for their continued support in supplying charter boats for our many IODA events over the year.  We appreciate all that you do in supporting Optimist class activity worldwide.

Optimist sailors are glued together by the camaraderie that comes from the 'Opti Experience" for both girls and boys.  They are all part of an extended family in over 110 countries around the world. 

IODA is very proud of our Optimist family and we are committed to continually improving and building the Optimist Class in the future.  Thanks to all of you, for kids all over the world.......Sailing starts here!

From all of us at IODA, we wish you a wonderful holiday with your family and friends and look forward to meeting and working with you in 2019!  

Happy Sailing!
