TIODA is the state representative body for all optimist sailors in Tasmania.
The association is here to help provide opportunities for Tasmanian optimist sailors to learn, develop and have fun. TIODA does this by supporting and encouraging Optimist sailing through regular coaching camps from intermediate to advanced levels.
As well as delivering regular coaching and training opportunities, TIODA conducts the annual Tasmanian International Optimist State Championships.
TIODA actively encourages and supports its members to compete at regattas in Tasmania, interstate and internationally.
Membership of TIODA is renewed annually, and is open to all optimist sailors in Tasmania. Membership of TIODA is required before a sailor can participate in training camps and/or state and national championships.
