Twelve countries have confirmed their participation in the 2021 Optimist North American Championship (OPTINAM), event scheduled for May 29th to June 5th in the Riviera Nayarit.

Linda Green, co-president of the event, confirmed that 113 competitors had registered so far, plus their coaches and team leaders, for a total of almost 150 participants.

The Vallarta Yacht Club and the Paradise Village Nuevo Vallarta hotel, the competition venues, are preparing to receive representatives from Argentina, Bahamas, Bermuda, Brazil, Cayman Islands, Chile, Guatemala, Puerto Rico, United States, Uruguay, Virgin Islands and Mexico.

“We are pleased to welcome such a large number of countries considering the current COVID environment we live in,” said Linda Green. She emphasized that the entire organization is working hard to ensure protocols are in place to keep participants, volunteers, and staff members safe.

The 2021 Optimist North American Championship is one of the most important world regattas for the Optimist Boat class and one of only seven continental championships sanctioned by the International Optimist Dinghy Association (IODA). It is also backed by the Mexican Sailing Federation (FMV) and the World Sailing Federation.

Participants in the championship are the best, fastest, and most talented young sailors globally; many of them are likely to be the next Olympic champions.
