Welcome to the South West Region Flotillas Section

Welcome to the South-West Region pages. Here you will find news and information on all events going on in the South-West for sailors of all abilities, with a focus on helping the sailors learn in a safe and fun environment and make loads of friends along the way. There are competitive events as well and we encourage sailors to compete at their applicable level (we often have beginners and main fleet categories). The goal of the regional sailing is to help the sailors develop a love of sailing, good skills and technique, and friendships so that they are prepared for higher level training, racing and squads if that is the route that they choose. Additionally we have training and racing for squad & higher level sailors.

Throughout the year there will be various activities and events; keep an eye on this section of the website for more details and sign up to the South-West Region Newsletter for all of the latest information.

The South-West region covers Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Somerset and Gloucestershire. So we have some beautiful scenery and exceptional dinghy sailing venues.

If you are looking to join a flotilla or start a new flotilla or would like any other information on Optimist sailing in the South-West, please contact Elspie Munro-Price – The South-West area rep.
