Let’s demystify the Opti Age …
Your opti age is the age you are on the 31st December of that year. For example: if you turn 12 on the 12th December you are considered Opti Age 12 for the year.
A skipper can only race Optimists until December 31st in the year they turn 15. On December 31st of that year, they are what’s called “aged out” of the Optimist Class and can no longer race the boat. In addition competitive sailors are rarely over 50 kgs.
This information can be found on our website HERE.
Best wishes from the NZ International Optimist Dinghy Association
