Regatta Participation:

The team participates in several one and two-day regattas each season.  All sailors on the optimist racing team are strongly encouraged to take part in these regattas as they provide an ideal platform to have fun and enjoy the sport while further developing their sailing skills.  Regattas registration fees are separate and in addition to MSYSP’s season fee.

Our very own Buccaneer Blast Regatta is scheduled for February 27-28.  All MSYSP opti sailors are encouraged to participate in our home regatta.  A full regatta schedule will be posted on this website as soon as the dates are confirmed.
