Optimist Fun Fleet in Cork Dinghy Fest
The Organizers of Cork Dinghy Fest 2015, have decided to introduce a Optimist fun fleet to this years event. This fleet is for the sailors that do not qualify for the main optimist fleet. The idea is that this fleet will take part in some point to point fun races, like a race around Spike Island or a race up the Owenabue River at hight tide etc. The young sailors will also be involved in fun shore side activities if the weather does not permit them to take to the water on any given day. This is seen as a great way to include as many sailors as possible in the festival without compromising the racing of the other fleets.

We have also decided to limit the main Optimist fleet to the first fifty entrants. Sailors must be ranked in the top fifty, from their Junior or Senior National rankings 2014.
Event plans are now well under way and it is shaping up to be a unique sailing experience, with four main race areas as well as two point to point race areas.
The shore side will not disappoint either. Here is a quick look at what’s on.
- Fun activities for all after sailing, (Stand up paddle board races, adult Optimist racing etc.)
- Aprés sail music,
- Anto’s Famous BBQ.
- Special guest speakers,
- Dinghies on display.
- Invitational sailing by other classes after racing.
- Tidal Briefing for the next day on each race area.
- Night time bands and DJ’s.
- Dedicated camping, See Booking Form
These are just a preview of what is to come.
