Welcome to the North Region Flotillas Section

Welcome to the home of Optimist dinghy sailing in the East. The North Optimist scene is one of the most welcoming and vibrant in the UK. Previous sailing experience is definitely not a requirement for parents – help and advice is available every step of the way. Basic sail training can be had at many clubs and schools and is the best preparation for the fabulous and fun racing circuit. All our racing events feature a regatta fleet with great coaches. Fully fledged sailors battle it out in the main fleet at our events and races nationwide.
