Junior Sailing

For children aged between about 6 and 14 years of age, there is a very active fleet of 30 Optimists, like the ones shown below.

The ‘Oppies’ can often be seen on the water on Saturdays as well as Sundays, with expert tuition available to an exceptionally high standard, provided by the Yachting Association of Sri Lanka. The young Optimist sailors have represented Sri Lanka in International competition both abroad and in Sri Lanka.
