Optimist European Team Championship
European Nations take part in this race based on their ranking in the Optimist European and World Championship regattas.
Every year, the IODA General Meeting (which in 2015 was held in China and again confirmed Ledro as the location for the European Championship in 2017) decides the location of the Continental and World Championships two years ahead of the date of the event. The AVLLedro has had the honour of organising this prestigious event for the past 7 years, an unprecedented streak in the European Championships panorama. The top 16 European Nations take part in the race, based on their ranking in the Optimist European and World Championship regattas; the group is joined by the National teams of Turkey and Israel. Over the years, the regatta has become a pleasant event on the European scene of Optimist boats, which are reserved for children under 16 years of age.
