Welcome to the North West Region Flotillas Section

Our aim for the North West optimist helms is for them to have active local flotillas that can introduce them to the class. We encourage them to enjoy their sailing at their Club and beyond. We have some very active flotillas in the region and we are keen to help other clubs in the region that want to (re)introduce the Optimist for their juniors.

We also aim to promote local competition at our clubs and build a local skilled base of helms ready for national training and competition.
