Lymington Optimist Open sailors and their parents/guardians and siblings are very welcome to use our clubhouse facilities during the event. On the ground floor you will find our changing facilities, security lockers and training rooms. Upstairs, relax in our family-friendly restaurant and bar (and sun terraces too if the weather permits!),with arguably the most picturesque views in Lymington. Do come upstairs and make yourselves at home whilst they are out on the water - the Club is situated in a stunning riverside location with a great vantage point when they are sailing back up the river.
