Irish Optimist Nationals at the Royal Irish Yacht Club


We are delighted to host the Irish Optimist National and Open Championships this year at the Royal Irish Yacht Club from Wednesday 16th to Sunday 20th August.  This will be a big event with up to 200 competitors expected to take part, and we will need loads of volunteers to make this the best event possible.  

If you have some time to come along and help out, for a few hours or a few days, it will be much appreciated!  You do not need to have any experience, there will be plenty you can do to help.  

If you’d like to help out, please get in touch with Gill O'Connor (event chairwoman, and let me know your availability.  If you would like to discuss further, please speak to Gill, or to Michael Tyrrell (race management,, Charlotte Norwood (prizegiving,, Kevin Leonard (Junior Committee) or Susan O'Gallagher (Junior Committee).

Thank you!
