From January 4th - 11th Mornington Yacht Club held the 2014 AIODA International Optimist Australian & Open Championships. The regatta was a major success and was enjoyed by all sailors of all ages. As well as being a fun and family friendly regatta, it also showcased the pinnacle of junior youth sailing in Australia. With over 340 entries it is the biggest ever single class regatta to be held in the Southern Hemisphere. A huge thank you to everyone involved in organising and making the event run so smoothly.
