Ram Island hosts these regattas each year:

Austin LaFrance Opti Regatta

Optis – July 17 at RIYC

The Austin LaFrance Opti Regatta is open to all age eligible sailors with class legal Optis. We have a separate Green Fleet and start the Red, Blue & White Fleets together. Scoring is done overall and trophies are awarded to fleet leaders. We usually have over 70 sailors so we encourage carpooling and towing.  We use three minute dinghy starts and try to get in as many races as conditions permit.
