  • About BODA

    In 1998 the parents of Bermuda’s Opti sailors officially agreed to form an organization to be called the Bermuda Optimist Dinghy Association. Since those early days the Association has become a registered Bermuda Charity (#662).

    BODA members can be any child 15yrs or younger with an interest in Optimist sailing and their parents. The intent is to pull from the diverse group of children in Bermuda who are exposed to the various summer sailing programs to foster competitive sailing throughout the year. Weekly sailing is held on Sunday afternoons for advanced sailors and intermediate sailors. BODA has recently expanded its offering of racing by organizing the popular GREEN FLEET.

    BODA organizes specialized clinics, usually during school breaks, by bringing in specialist coaches. BODA sailors are regularly encouraged to take part in various regattas oversea’s. Annually there is the IODA Optimist World Championship, the IODA North and South American Championships as well as several other International events in which individuals from Bermuda regularly participate.

    As with clubs round the world, it is through the tireless efforts of volunteers who help make BODA a reality for our children. Because of their dedication and commitment to Bermuda’s young people, we have continued to see tremendous growth in the abilities of the fleet overall.

            Development Program

            MISSION

            The purpose of the Development Program is to support and promote broad, diverse and inclusive community-based sailing of the Optimist class in Bermuda.

            BACKGROUND

            BODA has established a Development Fund to support the Development Program through donations received from anonymous donors restricted for this purpose.

            USE OF FUNDS

            Development Funds may only be used to support the following Optimist class activities in the following two ways:

            1. Group - Costs associated with hosting local clinics or coaching programs that support the following: Green Fleet, female sailing, public school / community youth sailing and / or other. There shall be no direct fees (e.g. entry fees) charged to sailors for participation in these activities.

            2. Individual - Direct costs associated with sailing such as equipment, clothing, membership fees and / or regatta fees. The maximum amount of any award is $300 to an individual in a fiscal year and on the condition that the sailor (or any sibling) has not previously received any BODA funding and / or sailed in an overseas regatta. Indirect and / or non-sailing costs (e.g. flights) are explicitly excluded. The Development Program Officer shall make the determination as to whether an individual application meets the stated criteria.

            Funding for a Group activity requires the pre-consent of the donor(s) as to whether the proposed purpose of the activity meets the spirit of the Development Program and, if so, Development Funds can be applied to the proposed activity.

          • About BODA

            In 1998 the parents of Bermuda’s Opti sailors officially agreed to form an organization to be called the Bermuda Optimist Dinghy Association. Since those early days the Association has become a registered Bermuda Charity (#662). BODA members can be any child 15yrs or younger with an interest in Optimist sailing and their parents. The intent is to pull from the diverse group of children in Bermuda who are exposed to the various summer sailing programs to foster competitive sailing throughout the year. Weekly sailing is held on Sunday afternoons for advanced sailors and intermediate sailors. BODA has recently expanded its offering of racing by organizing the popular GREEN FLEET. BODA organizes specialized clinics, usually during school breaks, by bringing in specialist coaches. BODA sailors are regularly encouraged to take part in various regattas oversea’s. Annually there is the IODA Optimist World Championship, the IODA North and South American Championships as well as several other International events in which individuals from Bermuda regularly participate. As with clubs round the world, it is through the tireless efforts of volunteers who help make BODA a reality for our children. Because of their dedication and commitment to Bermuda’s young people, we have continued to see tremendous growth in the abilities of the fleet overall.

                    Development Program

                    MISSION

                    The purpose of the Development Program is to support and promote broad, diverse and inclusive community-based sailing of the Optimist class in Bermuda.

                    BACKGROUND

                    BODA has established a Development Fund to support the Development Program through donations received from anonymous donors restricted for this purpose.

                    USE OF FUNDS

                    Development Funds may only be used to support the following Optimist class activities in the following two ways:

                    1. Group - Costs associated with hosting local clinics or coaching programs that support the following: Green Fleet, female sailing, public school / community youth sailing and / or other. There shall be no direct fees (e.g. entry fees) charged to sailors for participation in these activities.

                    2. Individual - Direct costs associated with sailing such as equipment, clothing, membership fees and / or regatta fees. The maximum amount of any award is $300 to an individual in a fiscal year and on the condition that the sailor (or any sibling) has not previously received any BODA funding and / or sailed in an overseas regatta. Indirect and / or non-sailing costs (e.g. flights) are explicitly excluded. The Development Program Officer shall make the determination as to whether an individual application meets the stated criteria.

                    Funding for a Group activity requires the pre-consent of the donor(s) as to whether the proposed purpose of the activity meets the spirit of the Development Program and, if so, Development Funds can be applied to the proposed activity.

                  • About BODA

                    In 1998 the parents of Bermuda’s Opti sailors officially agreed to form an organization to be called the Bermuda Optimist Dinghy Association. Since those early days the Association has become a registered Bermuda Charity (#662). BODA members can be any child 15yrs or younger with an interest in Optimist sailing and their parents. The intent is to pull from the diverse group of children in Bermuda who are exposed to the various summer sailing programs to foster competitive sailing throughout the year. Weekly sailing is held on Sunday afternoons for advanced sailors and intermediate sailors. BODA has recently expanded its offering of racing by organizing the popular GREEN FLEET. BODA organizes specialized clinics, usually during school breaks, by bringing in specialist coaches. BODA sailors are regularly encouraged to take part in various regattas oversea’s. Annually there is the IODA Optimist World Championship, the IODA North and South American Championships as well as several other International events in which individuals from Bermuda regularly participate. As with clubs round the world, it is through the tireless efforts of volunteers who help make BODA a reality for our children. Because of their dedication and commitment to Bermuda’s young people, we have continued to see tremendous growth in the abilities of the fleet overall.
