Day 1 https://vrsport.tv/vr-media/2018-optimist-british-national-open-championship-day-one/
The start of the qualifiers for the huge international Optimist fleet in Pwllheli, Wales. It turned out to be a long day on the water, six hours, with just a start, beat and downwind leg before abandonment. Hardy sailors these Oppies!
Day 2 https://vrsport.tv/vr-media/2018-optimist-british-national-open-championship-day-two/
Day Two of the UK Optimist Nationals 2018 hosted by Plas Heli in North Wales. “Choppy and light winds” – classic for the region if it’s not blowing old boots! Three races completed and many smiles or frowns with plenty of stories to tell the coaches and support crews (parents).
Meet the Regatta Fleet – the very young guns competing at the 2018 Optimist British Nationals. On water coaching, having fun with their friends makes for a great introduction to big fleet racing.
