XXIX International Palamos Optimist Trophy (Optimist Charter)
February 9 - February 17
SailCoach maintains a fleet of approximately 12 Winner Optimist guaranteed to be less than one year old, our fleet of charter boats will be at most major Optimist regattas in Europe. This means you never have to worry about transporting your boat and it will allow you to fly into the regatta venue with your Optimist all ready to sail.
SailCoach has been operating European Laser Charters for well over 23 years and we take pride in providing the best service as we are always on site to help sort out those little problems. We are now able to offer an Optimist charter service along the same lines as our Laser charter service. There is no other organisation that offers such a wide choice of regattas and services in both classes of boat.
Our goal is to enable Optimist sailors from any part of the world to compete on the European circuit or participate in our training clinics with good equipment, hassle free. We are Optimist and Laser sailors ourselves, so we understand your needs.
If you are thinking of competing in Europe then please ask us about putting an Optimist charter package together for your needs, as we can take a lot of the effort out of competing at European regattas. We will do our very best to put a package together that suit your sailing plans.
