The purpose of the Madtown Regatta Green Fleet is to provide an opportunity for our beginner Optimist sailors to participate in a sailing event and for their families to learn what happens prior to attending more competitive events. The following guidelines should be considered (if in doubt, please consult your Sailing School Instructors):

 • Demonstrate the ability to sail an Optimist both upwind & downwind.

 • Willingly accept coaching and help by instructors while on the water.

 • Are not frustrated sailing with sailors who do not know the rules.
