Optimists are sailed in four divisions: Green Fleet: Open to all novice sailors under age 15 and through 12/31 of the calendar year in which they turn age 15; White Fleet: Age 10 and under; Blue Fleet: Age 11 - 12; and Red Fleet: Age 13 - 15. Skipper's age on the first day of a regatta determines his or her fleet for that regatta (consistent with USODA requirements). Skippers move fleets on their 11th and 13th birthdays. Those turning 15 may continue in the Red Fleet through December 31st of that year. Sailors who change fleets during the year will still receive participation points for each regatta sailed. Optimist Red, White, and Blue sailors will be assigned a fleet for TSA year-end scoring purposes. The fleet assigned is the appropriate fleet for the last regatta of the year.
2 Laser Full, Laser Radial, Laser 4.7 and Double-Handed boats (420 Club, 420 Collegiate, I-420, FJ or other double handed boat as designated by the host club) are sailed as senior fleets. Club 420 with trapeze and spinnaker is the double-handed boat of choice, but College 420, I-420, FJ or other double handed boat as provided by the host club can be sailed. Individual regattas should designate the double-handed boat that will be sailed at their event and if the boats will be provided by the club.
