  2. Opti Cottage Club Regatta – August (Date TBD) – LBSC, Lake of Bays

***There will be additional costs to enter these regattas which may include travel, food and entrance fees. Both regattas will be optional.


Each racer accepted into the program will be provided with a race quality Optimist for the duration of the session. Boats are limited therefore privately owned Optimists are welcome.

LBSC has a limited number of club Optimists. If we have more interested participants than available boats, we will hold a lottery to select the team and then start a waitlist.

We will communicate if your sailor has been accepted into the program before LBSC opens up their registration at the end of May.
