COACH MEDIA REPORT NAM’S 2017 – AUSTRALIAN TEAM
OptiAUS works in association with a Host club to conduct an Australian & Open Championship each year. The “Gill OptiAUS 2018” Championships event will be held at the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron, Manly Queensland between 3rd -10th January.
The OptiAUS Committee are looking to work with a suitable operator to provide charter boats & chandlery service to both interstate and international visitors participating in the event.
With over 260 sailors from nine countries, the 2017 Gill Australian and Open Optimist Championships held at Largs Bay Sailing Club in South Australia was a huge success. The strong international fleet of 33 sailors from Europe, Asia, the Pacific, New Zealand and America made this one of most competitive fleets seen in Australia and has really lifted the international profile of Optimist sailing in the region. In the Open Fleet international sailors took the honours with Malaysian and Singapore taking out the first three places.
