Volunteers – at the heart of IOCA

“Sailing is a volunteer-based sport and Optimist sailing is no different. IOCA is really a group of parents that have come together to help plan and organise Optimist sailing in the UK. Although we have a paid administrator, the vast bulk of the work is done by volunteers – committee members, area reps, flotilla leaders, event co-ordinators and event volunteers. We want those volunteers to work together collaboratively and openly. IOCA should not be seen as a service but rather as members facilitating other members or parents.”
