HAMPTON—The United States Optimist Dinghy Association (USODA) 2021 Optimist Team Race National Championship will be hosted by Hampton Yacht Club on Sunday, August 1 through Wednesday, August 4. This sailing regatta is for youth, ages 11 to 15. The teams of four or five competitors represent their home clubs or regions and compete as a group against the other club teams. The sailors use Optimist sailboats, a small, single-handed pram with a single sail. They will compete in a round-robin bracket setup.

The event, which will take place from 9:30 to 10:00am during the competition, will host approximately 20 teams of the best young team racers from all over the country. It’s the first time the event has been hosted by Hampton Yacht Club.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
