Lots of the youths at Hayling move into double handers and go down the route of Oppy - Feva - 29er and the RS200 or RS800.
The 29ers do the National circuit and their own training at the weekends. The RS200 is always popular and the sprint racing is especially hotly contested. 

The optimist class is a funny one, it goes in cycles at HISC and some sailors do the full circuit and others club race. Rachael who is class captain took over this year and is very keen, so I am certain that next year will see a surge in numbers.

Hard to believe, H2, I know, but there is sometimes more to life and life choices than just sailing  Wink

True PeterG, unfortunately! 

I would bite off my arm to be moving to any club that sailed on the solent from the pond that I sail on because it is so close to home.

Probably worth personally visiting some of these clubs rather than judge by websites and series results.  I believe that Lymington has quite a strong Oppy scene; and I think (but stand to be corrected) that there is some reciprocal arrangement between the Lymington Clubs.  But Hayling and Lymington can be a bit of a nightmare to travel too and from on a hot weekend.

Or how about looking at some of the good inland clubs around you ... Frensham, Spinnaker and Burfield might be within easier reach, and compliment this with visiting the South Coast clubs for opens etc?
Happily living in the past

Thanks Davidyacht
Certainly will visit a number of the clubs, just trying to do a bit of research and get a short list

Getting AWAY from HISC after sailing can be a bore sometimes on a sunny summer day, but getting to the club for a Sunday 11am start means we're ahead of the beachgoers.

By chance I have bought my daughter's Oppie and her Topper from Warsash. They seem to have a great fleet of both and have a lot of activities for the kids with many doing the local zones.

I wouldn't rule out Burghfield and Frensham either just because they aren't on salt water.

Thanks craiggo, We are at Weymouth Optimist event this weekend and will try and hook up with some Warsash and Burghfield. There are lots of clubs doing great work with Youth and Juniors in the area but limited ones where the kids and the adults all sail multiple races on the same day. Up here sailing is a family sport with multiple families with parents racing their boats and the kids doing the same in the same races for usually 3 or 4 races a day.
