If you're visiting the Dinghy Show this weekend please make sure you stop by the IOCA (UK) stand B13 in the Great Hall to say hello!

As usual our stand will be manned by an enthusiastic bunch of young sailors keen to share their experiences of Optimist Sailing with others. You can learn about all the training and racing opportunities that IOCA offer and also meet some of the British Sailing Team stars that are joining us on the stand.

Of course we know that everyone loves a freebie so we'll have IOCA stickers, yearbooks and posters to give out - as well as some "treasure" for those on the RYA's Treasure Hunt route.

If you have a small person that's yet to sit in an Oppie they can try one for size on the stand. With a large screen showing our fantastic class videos adults will be able to reminisce and wonder how they ever managed to fit in a boat of this size!

Finally we're running two competitions with prizes just for taking part.

See you there...
