OptiOrange Valencia 2020: the first 130 entries from 16 nations are in!
With less than five months before the start of the OptiOrange Valencia 2020, the entry number has been climbing with 130 young Optimist sailors representing 16 nations signed up and ready to sail! St.Petersburg Yacht Club and the Real Club Náutico de Valencia are expecting even more entries to join in the upcoming months as new event features are announced.
Conceived around three main principles – competition, fun and easy access – the OptiOrange Valencia inaugurated in 2018 with 60+ entries. For the second edition in 2019, the entry list had grown dramatically, with 316 entries from 16 nations. This led to some fine-tuning of the regatta program to make this following year even more fun and competitive.
As announced, there will be two race courses for junior and cadet sailors, so all competitors will be racing in their designated division, according to experience level. Just as it was this year in March 2019, the clinics will be a great learning experience as world-famous coaches will be provided for those who want to be better prepared for the 2020 season. For those traveling from far away, the organizing committee will be providing charter boats.
The event also has the lowest entry fee, only 90 Euros (Early bird until February 5th, 2020) and meals will be provided during the regatta. The OptiOrange Valencia Regatta will also provide a free regatta shuttle for those who are staying in downtown Valencia. There will be on the water spectating opportunities for parents and guests wishing to witness the action. Daily prizes will be given, and of course everyone gets unlimited orange juice!
OptiOrange Valencia is taking place March 5th-8th, 2020. There are teams planning to come on March 1st to train ahead of the races. Get your team ready and sign up today!
