COUNTDOWN TO OPTIWORLD IN ANTIGUA
Monday 20th May 2019

The countdown is on to the 2019 Optimist World Championship being held in Antigua over 6th – 16th July. Registration has now closed and there are 262 sailors registered from 64 countries, setting a new world record for the most countries competing in a single class regatta.

Branded Optiworld merchandise can be pre-ordered online, and you can choose from a wide range of technical and casual clothing and accessories.

The team at optiworld are pleased to announce Wadadli Cats as the official spectator boat for the regatta, offering morning and afternoon cruises to watch the races in comfort and style. Get the details and book a spot soon.

Of course sponsors are essential additions to this event, and those that have come aboard for Optiworld will be helping to keep competitors healthy and the environment protected. Oasis Water will not only provide the drinking water, but also reusable bottles for all team members. Elements Antigua is sponsoring a reef-friendly SPF30 Sports Butter Lip Balm for all participants, and Yao Dairy will supply yogurts as part of healthy breakfasts for competitors. Fan Juices are also sponsoring natural juices for competitors for a vitamin boost each morning. Read more about the sponsors here.

As we look forward to the 2019 Optiworld, keep updated by following their Facebook page, and visit the event website for additional information on the regatta.
