WAIODA

Welcome to Western Australia International Optimist Dinghy Association.


Our main goal is to bring Optimist sailors and their families together to have some fun! We give sailors access to state, national and international regattas while also helping Optimist sailors develop the essential sailing skills and techniques to compete at their best level and provide sailors' rankings updated throughout the sailing season.
